How to take dope in sport...

How to take dope in sport...

It’s a charter for cheats and it costs just over $7 – a small price to pay for expert guidance on how to take anabolic steroids, beta-blockers, diuretics and other ‘useful’ substances.

The substances mentioned above are all on the list of banned drugs of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), sport.segodnya.ua says.

The Vice President of Ukraine’s National Olympic Committee (NOC) says he’s shocked by the book.  Viktor Korzh says it’s regrettable that most of the country’s education and science professionals are unaware of both the principles of health care and the documents regulating anti-doping activities.

“It is absolute unawareness of Ukraine’s international obligations and the rules of the Olympic movement, enshrined by international – and Ukraine’s – laws,” Viktor Korzh exclaims.

Ukraine’s Anti-doping Centre chief, Ivan Kurlishchuk, has described the publication, ‘Sport medicine and physical rehabilitation’ as an “anti-book”.

“What were the authors guided with writing that manual?” Kurlishchuk asked. “Sportsmen are the first to bear the blame for a positive dope test because this is a law violation. There is the World Anti-Doping Code ratified by Ukraine President’s order!”

It’s rumoured the book was a “sad mistake”.  The professor behind its publication refused to answer journalists’ questions.
