The trouble with Ostarine: Jimmy Wallhead’s
16th March 2018
• Tate Jackson is no longer listed on the roster of the International Swimming League’s (ISL) Cali Condors, after he was sanctioned for an anti-doping rule violation (ADRV) involving cannabis by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Australian swimmer Shayna Jack was dropped from the same team during 2019, due to ISL’s ‘zero tolerance’ approach to ADRVs.
• The International Betting Integrity Agency (IBIA) reported 64 cases of suspicious betting to the relevant authorities during the first quarter of 2021. IBIA said that the total is ‘broadly similar’ to the 64 cases reported in the fourth quarter of 2020. A quarter of all alerts came from Russia (10) and Bulgaria (6). Tennis (18), eSports (17), and football (12) made up almost 75% of alerts reported during the quarter.
• The International Olympic Committee (IOC), International Paralympic Committee (IPC), Tokyo 2020, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Government of Japan have agreed on additional measures designed to protect those participating in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics from Covid-19. The Playbooks first issued in February have been updated; and a decision on spectator capacities will be made in June.
