TnT sprinter receives 2-year ban
 Posted by admin on Sep 19th, 2009 and filed under News


PORT-OF-Spain – Trinidad & Tobago’s Olympian Ato Stephens has been banned for two years, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) disclosed on Friday.

Stephens, who failed to get past the first round of the 400m at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, was born Ato Modibo.

Stephens’ absence from the track this year had brought speculations in Trinidad & Tobago, as it was clear that he was not injured. However, according to a source close to the Trinidad & Tobago federation, “we knew about his positive test, but the IAAF had asked us not to say anything.”

The 30-year-old sprinter, who is married to Cayman Islands’ Cydonie Mothersille, also represented his country at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and again in Athens four years later. He placed fourth at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia.

At 30 he might as well retire now and concentrate on developing a different career!
De higher a monkey climbs is de less his ass is on de line, if he works for FIFA that is! ;-)

Confirmation of what was already known. Now the questions I have is why the hell it was told to be kept secret and what was the substance found in his system??

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

T&T runner banned

Published: Wednesday | September 23, 2009

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):

Trinidadian quarter-miler Ato Stephens has been slapped with a two-year doping ban by track and field's world governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). The 30-year-old was one of seven international athletes banned for doping violations, the IAAF announced on its website Friday.

Stephens tested positive for three banned substances - Tamoxifen, Oxandrolone and Stanozolol - at the Ponce Grand Prix, an IAAF and NACAC Area Permit Meeting which took place in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on May 16 this year.

To people like Willi, Flash, Ato and others who follow the sport can have a good laugh at the highlighted drug. :rotfl: :rotfl:

That is what Ben Johnson tested for in 1988!!!!

I decided to google the two other substances and when I placed oxandrolone(sold under the brand name Anavar) into the search engine the website for the people that make the product is the second link that comes up and they say on their website that the drug has a detection rate of 3 weeks!!!  Also everything that I have read on Tamoxifen says that it is mainly used to treat male/female breast cancer. :devil:


Brutha was seriously desperate ::)
