    Post "Secret Case Doping: How Russia creates it's winners"

    On the note of state sponsored doping programs in the 21th century, a documentary aired on german television last night about (systematic) doping in Russia and cover ups (and I missed it/ only knew of it afterwards ). I wanted to mention something about it in the Lee Chong Wei discussion some weeks ago but now it turns out it was even worse than I thought/knew/suspected .

    As said I haven't watched it yet but it popped up in my twitter feed a transcript was posted here:
    http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic...9886#msg179886

    Original title: "Geheimsache Doping - Wie Russland seine Sieger macht"
    http://www.ardmediathek.de/tv/Sports...&bcastId=53524 (not sure if viewable outside of Germany)

    Haven't read the transcript either so don't know if it's in the transcript but apparently a Russian marathon runner (female), 3 time winner of the Chicago marathon paid off the Russian doping agency $600,000 to escape a suspension but in the end failed to keep a clean "Biological Passport" and is set to get a two year ban after all and demanded here money back. So far two-thirds have been paid back and the remainder is suspected to have been used for bribes, etc. (internationally)

    Just realized this should probably be in the chit-chat section ... (Title) Might sound misleading and linked to badminton over here
