Keen competition this week for the coveted 'Doper Of the Past wEek' (DOPE) award. We considered Barry Bonds for adding some indictment charges in his BALCO trial. Dwain Chambers certainly deserves consideration for the amount and the scope of drugs he took during his BALCO days, and his bravado for taking on the UK Olympic establishment to worm his way back into the Games. Barbie of the MMA, Carina Damm led a strong female component this week, when she peed male steroid hormones.
However, in terms of doping toward achievement, the Winnied-up winner of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness wins the DOPE award this week. Yes, Big Brown, whose trainer hands out Winstrol to all his steads like a hopped-up monthly supplement, raced into the DOPE winners circle with the PED use.
