Cyclists involved in the same investigation...

This dude only had the blood extracted of course.

Schmidt was previously a doctor at the Gerolsteiner and Milram cycling team. He was accused of doping by Bernard Kohl when the Austrian rider was caught in 2008 but was cleared after a trial. German police reportedly found 40 bags of blood stored in a garage and arrested Schmidt at his surgery in Erfurt and suggested athletes from different sports were involved...
:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Schmidt probably gave up doping athletes after 2008 but was bored and needed something to do with his spare time after a while...

Just occurred to me why we shouldn’t be surprised at the above statement “Arrested at his surgery in Erfurt” prior to 1989 Erfurt was in East Germany,.

Apparently, still not big enough though: he's also not been caught for HGH in a separate test failure:

This being boxing, it'll probably just be a few months off...
It gets even better. Miller has now tested positive for a third substance: EPO (as well as one of the previous ones, again). You couldn't make it up:

I'm putting this in here because the finger of suspicion has fallen on or near Sir Mo previously. However this row that's broken out between him and Haile Gebrselassie is quite delicious and somewhat astonishing. It doesn't reflect well on Sir Mo, one of a long line of things which don't reflect well from dodgy coaches and training partners to dubious time spent training in areas where testing regimes are more difficult. And that's before we get to that ridiculous advert where he runs through a wall and pours tea over himself. Petulant doesn't cover it..

The bitter exchange was started by Farah at the end of the press launch for Sunday’s London marathon, with the Briton picking up the microphone to launch an astonishing attack on Gebrselassie, who he said had not done enough after he had £2,500, a watch and two mobile phones stolen at the Ethiopian’s hotel last month.

Gebrselassie responded by accusing Farah and his entourage of “multiple reports of disgraceful conduct” while staying in his hotel, adding the British star had not paid his $3,000 hotel bill, despite a 50% discount, and claimed Farah was reported to police for attacking an athlete in the gym, a charge he said was later dropped.
