The winner is a cheat and will be proven in the trail after the world champs.
But not a good luck by Mack, he even tried to convince the 3rd place swimmer to do the same.

its not up to the myopic and cherry picking Aussie media to decide whether this guy is a cheat, its up to the arbitration authority of the sport. Innocent until proven guilty.

That Horton guy is not the sweet innocent media make him out to be and he is a sook
The winner was recently tested and was all negative, how embarassing will it be when the next lot of results are negative as well ?
It is not for him to decide who is a clean and who isnt.
Poor form i hope he says sorry to the winner.

Two ways one can view this (ok, that's obvious). Other swimmers (other countries) have applauded his courage to make a stand. This Chinese bloke deliberately broke a vial containing a blood sample didn't he? Jury is still out, so wait and see, but I have little faith of the authorities on this anyway.

Personally, I think it was wrong by the Aussie and there were other ways he could have made his protest.

But what does make me laugh is grosso. "This is poor sportsmanship from the skip....etc etc", but it's ok for his football mob to shirt pull at every opportunity, dive every two seconds, plead/beg with ref to card the opponent etc etc. Apparently this is acceptable and "sporting" from the inventors of such behaviour.

All teams in world football do that, not just Italy!

But correct about the chinese swimmer. I feel that he hasn't being prosecuted as ye, he probably won't be either.

Not all teams do it, but I suppose it's ok to pick and choose what is sporting or not when it suits trolls. Hypocrite is the word that comes to mind.

The international doping watchdog WADA said one countries athletes accounted for 147 anti-doping rule violations in 2016, the most recent year for which full figures are available. Nearly 61 ahead of France on 86 and almost double Australia on 75. Guess who Grosso?

Why do you change the subject to different sports?

Biased Aussie media are making hype about swimmers from other countries applauding but there is no solid evidence this is widespread. The context of the above evidence is important too. You can't cherry pick things and make a trial by media judgement. Look at what happened with Stajcic. That was trial by media until the real facts came out.

This is an "other sports" forum, or hadn't you noticed? Seems it's ok for you to cherry pick.

When you're discovered a one trick pony (eg Aussies very bad) it's usually to mask your own pitfalls.

No surprise you fit that mould.

Mack has been vocal against Sun Yang since his 3 month ban in 2014 for drugs.

Its not a recent stand by him

Is it proven he's a drug cheat?

If it's just allegations then what's his opinion on Thorpe?

If it's proven what's his opinion on shane warne?
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

What does Warne and Thorpe have to do with this topic??

Maybe throw in a few "english" cheats like Dean Richards or the famous Stuart Broad!
