    the sports medicine unit and the high ranking officials should take the hit for this.

    they are there to make sure athletes dont take such substances.

    in the defense of the athletes their are 4000 banned substances some as common as cough syrups so the official should take control of what these athletes take

    OOOOOoh boy. everyone seems to be trying too hard.

    What is the matter with our sportsmen and women? We do not want medals and awards this way. Work hard and perform to the best of your ability and we will love and respect you, even if you do not win a medal!

    Sports men and women, please do not insult your country.

    Very sad news.... What are the NOC / Sports ministry officials doing? They seem to be just there to enjoy the perks which come with the job rather than actually "doing" the said job!! With the London 2012 games looming, this is a big blow to Sri Lanka!!! Athletes, Trainers/Coaches and Officials should be held criminally accountable if accusations such as these are proven beyond a reasonable doubt!!! Modern athletes can not claim "accidental consumption" of banned substances.... They and their coaches should know better!!

    who will be the next ? Bankin moon?

    Alipola Monday, 23 May 2011 03:06 PM
