Interesting comparisons between ASADA investigation & BALCO Scandal
An ESPN investigative journalist has provided a fascinating comparison between the current ASADA investigation and the United State's now infamous BALCO Scandal.
The Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative (BALCO) came under investigation around a decade ago for supplying many leading athletes with a then-undetectable performance-enhancing drug.
Some of the high-profile athletes who were caught in the scandal included disgraced Sydney Olympic Gold medallist Marion Jones, World Champion boxer 'Suger' Shane Mosely and baseball's 'Home Run King' Barry Bonds
The investigation and its results were recorded in a book titled Game of Shadows and its co-author Mark Fainaru-Wada joined 3AW Sports Today to detail the comparisons between that case and Australia's current Drugs in Sport scandal.
INTERVIEW BELOW: Mark Fainaru-Wada speaks with Sports Today
"The most interesting parallel is that like your case we had a federal and government investigation that sort of spawned it," he told Gerard Healy and Dwayne Russell.
"And when the government announced the results, effectively, of their investigation and empanelled a grand jury they were not identifying any of the athletes who were accused of using these drugs.
"Those names were all protected from identification and it wasn't until the media began to uncover the names of those athletes that anyone was held accountable," he said.
Mr Fainaru-Wada says the explosive nature of the Australian Crime Commission's findings should not necessarily some as a surprise.
"I know it’s a shocking thing for you to have to deal with in Australia and probably has caught many fans by surprise but the reality is the use of these drugs in all sports is fairly popular because they work," he said.
TRENT CROAD: Former Hawk Trent Croad is at the centre of an Australian Crime Commission investigation. It's alleged he met with figures linked to the Commanchero bikie gang at a luxury hotel over a peptide deal.
NEIL MITCHELL: It's time for everyone to come clean. It's increasingly obvious James Hird is finished as head coach of Essendon. More than that, the Essendon coach accused of using the drug banned under the drug code could be in big trouble.
