NH: Body builders flee contest

I just had to post this after I read about it online this morning...

"THE Belgian bodybuilding titles were cancelled on Monday after anti-doping officials showed up and all 20 competitors fled."

GOLD!

"I've never seen anything like it and hope never to see anything like it again," anti-doping official Hans Cooman said.

He said bodybuilders just grabbed their gear and ran off when he entered the room.

"The sport has a history of doping and this incident didn't do its reputation any good," Cooman said.

Belgium's bodybuilding federation could not explain why competitors had rushed off.

"There is only one conclusion I can think of and that is doping," Cooman said.

During in-competition testing of northern Belgium's Flanders region bodybuilding events last year, 75 per cent of competitors tested positive for doping.

It is time for the "dope games" .

All power sports with leading Drug companies fielding teams and idiotic oversized guinea pig men as the entertainment .

Have to show what they are on in each event and breakdown dosage , let em go nuts , be a great freakshow.

Actually , probably not a great idea ...

Its already been done..its called the Olympics.

:(

They have beeen tainted since the 80's and now the real skill shown at them is by the drug companies and athletes who avoid detection.

Have a watch of Bigger, Faster, Stronger (documentary - http://linky.com.au/1lh1h) for a bit of an unbiased and quite informative view on steroids.

Entertaining and interesting - just what all docos should be...

(no, I don't take roids, never have - I still find it interesting and having facts in a discussion is kinda nice)

bodybuilders always use steroids, why is this even being tested? Anti-doping officials should get a real job

Exactly, the fact he's confirmed as a troll makes his comments even more pathetic than when we thought he was a 14 year old wannabe.

There are natural body building competitions and organisations around too, that pride themselves on not using drugs to obtain the great physiques on show. A lot of the competitors look better IMO than those in recent Mr. Olympia comps as well. Clearly this Belgian comp didn't fall into the natural category though...
