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."
"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.
