[ Editor's Note: Chryste Gaines, MBA, Olympic gold and bronze medal sprinter and former teammate of Marion Jones in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, stated the following in a Dec. 22, 2008 email to in response to the IOC ruling:
"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
If I were to make a listing of all of the dog behaviors I like it would most likely be fairly long. A deliciously comfortable tail wag, a bow to solicit play, and a mushy sigh before resting their head in your lap would absolutely make the list. However, those are only a few of the numerous the explanation why canine deliver us immense pleasure each day. However, my list of canine behaviors that are not so favorable is slightly short. For me, like most, one of many few things on that checklist would surely be coprophagia. Coprophagia is the consumption of feces. This will embrace the feces of others as well as their own.
