https://plus.google.com/102992969819414441094 Mahmoud Dakroury : On this day: At 24th September of 1988, Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson runs the 100-meter dash in 9.79...
On this day:
At 24th September of 1988, Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson runs the 100-meter dash in 9.79 seconds to win gold at the Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. Johnson’s triumph, however, was temporary: He tested positive for steroids three days later and was stripped of the medal.

Ben Johnson moved with his family to the suburbs of Toronto from his native Jamaica as a teenager, and soon after began sprinting with the Scarborough Optimists track and field club, coached by Canadian national track and field coach Charlie Francis.

In 1984, Johnson qualified for the Los Angeles Summer Olympics, where he finished third in the 100 meters with a time of 10.22 seconds, less than three-tenths of a second behind American gold-medal winner Carl Lewis. Johnson left Seoul determined to return to the Olympics in 1988, and, this time, to bring home the gold.

At the 1987 world track and field championships in Rome, Johnson ran the 100 meters in a mere 9.83 seconds and set a new world record, giving notice to the world that he was more than a contender. Though Carl Lewis ran a personal best of 9.93 seconds, he was forced to settle for second place.

Just as Johnson seemed to be reaching his peak, however, he injured his hamstring. After a re-injury in May 1988, the conventional wisdom was that he would not be at full strength in Seoul. Meanwhile, at the American Olympic trials, Lewis ran the fasted 100 meters to that time, a wind-aided 9.78 seconds and resumed his position as the favorite going into the Olympics.

On September 24, in the 100-meter final, Johnson lined up in lane 6, while Lewis took his position in lane 3 and fellow contender Linford Christie of Great Britain lined up in lane 4. Johnson got off to an explosive start, and though Lewis was known for his closing speed and set an American record, a non-wind-aided 9.92 seconds, in the event, he simply could not catch up and finished several full strides behind Johnson. After the race, Johnson declared to reporters, ”The important thing was to beat Carl. That was my main goal, not the world record. Just to beat Carl Lewis to win.”

What happened next has been seared into the collective memory of the Olympics ever since. On September 27, Johnson tested positive for steroids. He denied willfully using steroids, instead claiming that an herbal drink he’d been given before the race had been spiked. The International Olympic Committee refused to accept his explanation, and Johnson was stripped of the gold medal, which was then given to Carl Lewis.

A comeback was stillborn after he again failed a drugs test in 1993 and was banned for life. He spent the next few years drifting from job to job, at one point even working as a personal trainer in Libya for Colonel Gaddafi's son Saadi, who had pretensions of becoming a professional soccer player.

Today Johnson appears to have found a home and some stability. He now coaches aspiring soccer stars at the Genova International Soccer School in Italy. He still burns with what he sees as the unfairness of his treatment by the IOC, making conspiratorial claims that he was sacrificed while others were "protected who were taking the same thing."

Johnson will always be a pariah, synonymous with those blistering few seconds when he flew too close to the sun before crashing back to earth. Yet the experience hasn't diminished his belief that he still deserves a place among the pantheon of greats.

Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton, MBE is a British from England, currently racing for the Mercedes AMG Petronas team. He is the 2008, 2014 and 2015 Formula One World Champion. In December 1995, at the age of ten, he approached McLaren team principal Ron Dennis at the Autosport Awards ceremony and told him, "I want to race for you one day ... I want to race for McLaren." Less than three years later McLaren and Mercedes-Benz signed him to their Young Driver Support Programme. After winning the British Formula Renault, Formula Three Euroseries, and GP2 championships on his way up the racing career ladder, he drove for McLaren in 2007, making his Formula One debut 12 years after his initial encounter with Dennis. Hamilton's contract for the McLaren driver development program made him the youngest ever driver to secure a contract which later resulted in a Formula One drive. Coming from a mixed background, with a black father and white mother, Hamilton is often labelled "the first black driver in Formula One", although Willy T. Ribbs tested a Formula One car in 1986. Hamilton was born in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England. Although widely reported as being named after American sprinter Carl Lewis, Hamilton states that this is not the case. Hamilton's mother, Carmen (Larbalestier), is white British, while his father, Anthony Hamilton, is black British, making him mixed-race; Anthony Hamilton's parents moved to the UK from Grenada in the 1950s. @LewisHamilton #LewisHamilton #islandpeeps #FormulaOneRacing #MBE #Grenada

Confidential athlete medical data relating to last month's Rio Olympics has been hacked and published by a Russian cyber espionage group with the threat of more to come, the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) said on Tuesday (Wednesday NZ Time).

It identified the group as Tsar Team (APT28), also known as Fancy Bear.

The www.fancybear.net website said it had information about a number of US athletes, including tennis sisters Serena and Venus Williams as well as multiple gold medal-winning gymnast Simone Biles.

Serena Williams, seen here at the 2016 US Open in New York, is believed to be among those targeted.

Serena Williams, seen here at the 2016 US Open in New York, is believed to be among those targeted.

"Wada condemns these ongoing cyber-attacks that are being carried out in an attempt to undermine Wada and the global anti-doping system," said director general Olivier Niggli in a statement that did not name any athletes.

World Anti-Doping Agency's (Wada) systems hacked reportedly by a Russia group, which has released athletes' confidential data relating to Rio Olympics testing.

"Wada has been informed by law enforcement authorities that these attacks are originating out of Russia."

Biles responded by saying that taking medication for ADHD was nothing to be ashamed of. Biles' leaked data showed that she had tested positive for methylphenidate, also known as Ritalin.

Russian news agencies quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying any possible Russian government or secret service participation in the hacking was "out of question".

Russia's track and field team, with the exception of one athlete based in the United States, were banned from the Rio Games in August over what Wada said was a state-backed doping programme.

Russian competitors in other sports also had to prove they were clean by meeting several criteria to be eligible to compete in Brazil.

The fancybear.net website said the group had hacked the Wada databases and would start by releasing exclusive information on the US team followed later by other national Olympic teams.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

Wada said the group was believed to have gained access to its anti-doping administration and management system (ADAMS) via an International Olympic Committee-created account for the Rio Games.

Data accessed included so-called Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) issued by sports federations and national anti-doping organisations that allow athletes to take certain substances.

"Wada deeply regrets this situation and is very conscious of the threat that it represents to athletes whose confidential information has been divulged through this criminal act," said Niggli.

"We are reaching out to stakeholders ... regarding the specific athletes impacted."

Niggli added that the hack was "greatly compromising the effort by the global anti-doping community to re-establish trust in Russia further to the outcomes of the Agency's independent McLaren Investigation Report."

The McLaren report described, among other things, how Russians were replacing positive doping samples with clean ones during the Sochi winter Games with the support of the Russian secret service.

Wada revealed last month that Russian whistleblower Yulia Stepanova's electronic account had been illegally accessed with a "perpetrator" obtaining details which would normally include her registered whereabouts.

Stepanova, in hiding in North America, helped reveal the biggest state-backed doping programme in Russia and was forced to flee the country with her husband for fear of her life.

We always had suspicions. But what about the "Oh my God I am soooooo clean" cyclist, Lance Armstrong? What about Carl Lewis, who himself admitted failing tests - three tests - before the 1988 Olympic trials? What about the "hundreds of American athletes" Lewis referred to in the same conditions, 100 of which later proved to have documented doping abuses but who were cleared to compete? What about the Canadian Ben Johnson? And what about Flo-Jo's meteoric career when she broke all records in just one year, then suddenly retired beforee doping tests could be performed, then died before she was 40?

Galactic doped-up US stars not banned from Rio Games. We all knew it all along. We knew it when the famous Flo-Jo declared she was clean, then suddenly retired, and died aged 38. We knew it when Russian athletes who never took a banned substance in their lives were banned from Rio just because some Canadian wrote a report. The more they lie...

And so the entire Russian Paralympic team was banned from Rio because some Canadian called McClaren wrote a report for his British boss (and obviously the Americans pulling the Poodle's strings) without substantiating specific evidence against all specific athletes based on the claims of a rogue Russian official (Stepanov) who had had criminal proceedings brought against him. And who is now cringing and hiding like a coward in the USA, where else? Most of Russia's top athletes were banned from the Olympics to deprive Russia of medals for the same reasons.

Every time Russia gets anywhere near a sporting event, especially when Russia starts winning all the medals, Russia is accused of some geopolitical incident which results in its own venues being boycotted or else its competitors banned from competing overseas. They threatened to boycott Sochi but did not and the looks on their faces when Russia swept the medals boards and "owned the podium" was a foretaste of something to come.

We always had suspicions. But what about the "Oh my God I am soooooo clean" cyclist, Lance Armstrong? What about Carl Lewis, who himself admitted failing tests - three tests - before the 1988 Olympic trials? What about the "hundreds of American athletes" Lewis referred to in the same conditions, 100 of which later proved to have documented doping abuses but who were cleared to compete? What about the Canadian Ben Johnson? And what about Flo-Jo's meteoric career when she broke all records in just one year, then suddenly retired beforee doping tests could be performed, then died before she was 40?

And now what happens?
A group of hackers called Fancy Bears claim to have hacked the records of the World Anti-Doping Agency, members of whose staff allegedly admitted in a prank telephone call to Russian investigators that the Russian ban was politically motivated. This was the agency, chaired by a Briton, whose Canadian investigator McClaren wrote the report which got clean Russian athletes banned. So much for McClaren's reputation (RASPBERRY).

And what do the Fancy Bears claim to have found? Enough evidence to have WADA mega riled, to be sure, because it has denounced the alleged hack as a criminal act and has announced it will hold an investigation. Interesting. So what do the claims substantiate? That American sports stars - Galactic sports stars such as the Williams sisters, basketball player Elene Belle Donne and that gymnast called Biles - took banned substances, beknown to WADA, but were allowed to do so and also to compete.

This, while innocent Russian athletes who never took a banned substance in their lives were banned. One weight and one measure for all?

So how does the West wriggle its way out of this one? In Libya when they were caught backing terrorist groups on their own lists of proscribed groups they said "How about when a terrorist group moves towards peace they deserve support?" Peace? By slicing the breasts off women in the street and raping girls before and after they were beheaded after being forced to watch their mother have her throat slit? One wonders what Mr. McClaren has to say about that.

Strong evidence
Fancy Bears claim to have leaked documents which show that Venus and Serena Williams and Simone Biles took banned substances. Before anyone says "show me the documents", Biles herself has come forward and admitted that she did take banned medication, but this came under Therapeutic Use Exemptions, which allows athletes to take banned substances but still compete. So where was this investigation in McClaren's report? And scroll down to the end of this article to take a look at the documents for yourself. They are real, ladies and gentlemen.

The tip of the iceberg
Fancy Bears claims that it has more, a lot more, on how Olympic medals were obtained by Western athletes who were doped up to the eyeballs, while clean Russian athletes and the entire Paralympic team were banned. The message from the group is: "Wait for sensational proof of famous athletes taking doping substances any time soon."

The reaction from the International Olympic Committee? It "strongly condemns such methods which clearly aim at tarnishing the reputation of clean athletes."

So what do Fancy Bears say? "After detailed studying of the hacked Wada database we figured out that dozens of American athletes had tested positive. The Rio Olympic medalists [sic] regularly used illicit strong drugs justified by certificates of approval for therapeutic use. In other words they just got their licences for doping."

How will WADA and the IOC wriggle out of that one?

Red-faced, sweating profusely, bald heads glistening, fidgeting in their chairs, WADA says that sych attacks compromise the reaching of an understanding with Russia. In short, a threat to keep Russia locked out. OK then fine. It takes two to tango. Let us read the claims, let McClaren investigate them if he has an iota of integrity, and this time do it properly, presenting hard evidence, dates, times and facts and then let's see about who is cheating and who needs to be banned. Then let us investigate McClaren. :-)

So I say to WADA and to the IOC: "We strongly condemn such methods as those used by the lackey McClaren (after all, any Canadian will do) which clearly aim at tarnishing the reputation of clean Russian athletes and Paralympians".

The documents and evidence is available on their site and on Fancy Bears Facebook page. Knowing Facebook's policy on freedom of expression, watch how long the page lasts.
