    Doping has reached such levels, and saturated all invested audiences to such an extent, that 7 hours after this story is posted, there is not a peep from the trackie community.

    Just sayin.

    Look at the picture. Look at his arms. Look at how big they are. Obviously this prick was doping.

    Look at the musculature on every sprinter, and every thrower. Any skinny guys, except for Andre de Grasse ?

    Just because a guy is big doesn't mean he's doping. Some people have to genetics to bulk up easily and couple that with a good strength coach and you've got the perfect storm for idiots like you to make accusations, I'm not saying Dushane was or wasn't doping but your statement is just ridiculous!

    Okay, okay, everyone take their SARMS chill pill. Maybe my statement was a bit vague Mr (or Mrs) Anonymous, but what I was trying to get at was that compared to Mr Smellie on the left, Dushane has the "look" of someone on anabolic steroids - ie. very lean and big muscles (with very visible striations), prominent vasculature. Also see his Instagram account - www.instagram.com/p/6gSx0RODhc/?taken-by=supremefitness_dush. Very few top sprinters appear to have such low body fat, but are so big. He more closely resembles the physiques of known dopers who took anabolic steroids (Linford Christie, caught for Nandrolone http://files.whitbyforum.com/uploaded_images/Linford-christie_2-703283.jpg; Dennis Mitchell, with elevated testosterone levels http://media.indiatimes.in/media/content/2013/Jul/dennis_mitchell-getty_1373881836_540x540.jpg; Dwain Chambers, caught for TGH http://www.athleticsweekly.com/0/admin/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Dwain.jpg), than sprinters who have thus far been clean.

    Does my subjective analysis of Farrier hold true in this case? Yes, because he is a doping cheat, and he deserves to be kicked out of the sport for good. Is a similar subjective analysis an appropriate measure in judging whether someone is doping or not? Of course not.

    I'm guessing he could care less about this suspension.
    He took all that gear and still never ran sub 10, still was not the fastest Canadian so he knew the running thing was about finished.

    Now he can get back to doing his favorite activity...LIFTING WEIGHTS

    Mr. Farrier is banned for four years, while Mr. Horcoff is banned 20 games, and Mr. Manning is on the talkshow circuit this week.

    Does something seem a little disparate here?

    You SHOULD say he WAS doping, because he WAS doping. He was caught and banned for doping. You don't ingest SARM from a box of Wheaties.

    What an ignorant comment. You probably said the same thing about Priscillia Lopes-Schliep (like many others) until you realized it was genetics, not roids.

    I didn't say he was doping because he had big biceps. As you've said, that'd be ignorant. I would never say someone was doping because they have abnormally large or defined muscles. As you've suggested, there are many many more factors at play. At the top of athletics, every single person on the track is genetically predisposed to be very good at their event, and would physically appear out of the ordinary relative to your average Joe.

    However, knowing that Dushane was doping, one can imagine the effects of SARM on his physique, as his arms would most certainly be smaller and likely less defined if he was clean. That's my rationale.

    How many Athletics Canada members have been busted for doping since January 1st, 2013?

    I have a problem with admitted dopers being in the Hall of Fame as well... it paints a poor picture of the sport of athletics.

    TrollTakahashi : the only problem with labelling Miguel Indurain as a PED user is that steroids, EPO, and growth hormone weren't available until well after his career ended. They did stuff like drink bull's blood, and other weird crap that made absolutely no difference to their performances. Number two, who the Hell is Normann Stadler ? If you are accusing Hicham El Guerrouj, back it up ! He is kind of a holy figure to some of us.

    Miguel Indurian won the tour de France from 1991 to 1995. Perhaps you are thinking of someone else but Miguel most certainly had access to steroids, EPO and HGH. To be fair, he never tested positive but if you think someone who wins the worlds toughest endurance event 4 times in a row in a period where doping was rampant and testing was far behind the drugs of choice was only "drinking bull's blood or other weird crap", I have some gorgeous ocean front property here in Edmonton to sell you.

    I am well aware of Indurian's era. They just didn't have their stuff that much together until the Armstrong era. As an ex weight-lifter / thrower of that time I was well aware of the PED abuse in that time, and before. It is a kind of trusting of distance runners back then, because of innocence. It is, however, a whole different time now. It's no longer only the throwers, sprinters, and decathletes, particularly men, who use. Russian and Turkish women middle distance runners have been in the forefront recently. I trust no one now.
    I'm also glad to hear that Curtis Moss was using his problem substance on a therapeutic basis.

    To say that endurance athletes (both men and women) in the early 90's didn't have their stuff that much together is incorrect. When it comes to cheating, endurance athletes (skiiers, cyclists and yes, even our pure/honest/innocent distance runners) are every bit as dirty as the power event folks. Synthetic EPO was being widely used as a performance enhancing drug in the 90's although I personally suspect (I have no proof, just my own hunch) it was being used in the 80's by certain groups/individuals. First reported used of GH as a PED was 1982. Steroids have been around much longer of course.

    Just because Lance and his team refined doping to an impressive level doesn't mean those before him were innocent. Testing got better, the dopers were forced to and have gotten better at doping. Lance's doping protocol was impressive for sure.

    Trust no one indeed.

    I am also wondering who is coach was. He was listed as flying angels at the Canadian championships last year so I assume he was training with the pro group at York last year. I wonder if this has anything to do with the mass exodus of athletes from the Toronto Track and Field Centre this year and the firing of the Canadian coaches. Sarms aren't something that an athlete are going to search out on there own. Is this another scandal out of the Toronto Track and Field Centre coming?
