mohammad farah, british 10,000 meter runner
The leak details two instances when Farah was granted a therapeutic use exemption – for the corticosteroid triamcinolone in October 2008 and in July 2014 when he was placed on a morphine drip after collapsing following a training run. Farah said in 2015, during the uproar surrounding his coach, Alberto Salazar, in the wake of allegations in a BBC Panorama documentary over his methods, that he had only ever had one TUE.
so if he said he'd only ever had one, and he's had at least 2, that would make him a liar
(2 were leaked, but he may have had more0

Sir Bradley Wiggins protests his innocence
past winner of the Tour de France
He was revealed by the hackers last week to have had a Therapeutic Use Exemption to use performance enhancing drugs
It seems he made some remarks in his autobiography that appear to be untrue  
The leak led to intense scrutiny of Wiggins being given TUEs to inject triamcinolone to treat allergies, something that appeared to contradict comments in his own autobiography in which he said he had “never” used needles other than for vaccinations or when requiring a drip.
Bradley Wiggins’ former doctor questions use of banned steroid
Steffen told Newsnight: “I was surprised to see that there were TUEs documented for intramuscular triamcinolone just before three major events.”
somewhat of a coincidence

Sir Bradley Wiggins: No unfair advantage from drug
sir Bradley wiggins insists he didn't get an "unfair" advantage by using performance enhancing drugs
He seems to think that it was a fair advantage
Sir Bradley Wiggins has insisted he was not trying to gain an "unfair advantage" from being allowed to use a banned steroid before major races.
The Olympic cyclist told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show he took the powerful anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone for allergies and respiratory problems.
Sir Bradley said he sought therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) to "put himself back on a level playing field".
lol
TUEs allow the use of banned substances if athletes have genuine medical need.
or if the team has a crooked doctor who will sign off on it

and the British team seem to be encouraging this kind of behaviour
Sir Hugh Robertson, vice-chairman of the British Olympic Association, told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek: "Whatever you think about whether he should have been allowed to do this, the fact is the anti-doping rules at the time allowed him to do so.
"There was a set of rules in place with which he complied entirely."
The official line from both the cyclist and the british team seems to be, "so what if he was using performance enhancing drugs and got an advantage from it, what he did was within the rules"

Shawn Barber: Canada athlete 'ingested cocaine during sexual encounter'
lol
The 22-year-old avoided a two-year ban after successfully arguing that the drug was passed on through "kissing".
(snip)
Barber posted an online advert seeking a casual encounter with a woman who was "drug and disease free" the night before the Canadian Olympic trials.
if it's a prohibited substance, he should be banned.

7 medallists from 2012 Olympics fail retests

including Russian runner Yulia Zaripova, gold medalist in the women's 3,000-meter steeplechase at the 2012 London Olympics,
The IOC says Zaripova tested positive for the steroid turinabol.
?? google tells me it's a 60-year old steroid developed by the old East German dopers
You would have thunk when it's that old and everyone knows about it, it would be standard to test for it, therefore you'd have to be an idiot to use it as you'll get caught.
Stick to the newer designer steroids they don't know how to test for

Jemima Sumgong: 2016 Olympic marathon champion fails drugs test

epo
kenyan and it says she also won the london marathon last year
it doesn't say if she'll be stripped of her olympic medal

according to wiki, she also failed a drug test after coming 2nd at Boston in 2012 but got away with it
Sumgong tested positive for the banned substance prednisolone in her post-race anti-doping test and was given a two-year ban from competition by Athletics Kenya. However, she was cleared on appeal by the IAAF in September 2012, as the local injection which Sumgong had received was permitted under the governing body's rules
the latest test was a no-notice test so she didn't have time to flush her system
Sumgong tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) in an out-of-competition no-notice test conducted by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in Kenya, announced on April 6, 2017.
I'm surprised she didn't go into hiding to avoid the test like the british cyclists so often do. Maybe they caught her unawares

I don't know the full details but there seems to be a European proposal to cancel many track and field world records from before 2005
2005 is the cut-off because only since then have blood and urine been stored to allow subsequent drug test
The IAAF has stored blood and urine samples only since 2005 and current records that do not meet the new criteria would remain on an "all-time list", but not be officially recognised as records.
European Athletics proposes rewriting athletics world records after doping scandal
How will world records be recognised?
If the proposals are accepted by the IAAF, a world record would only be recognised if it meets all three of the following criteria:
   It was achieved at a competition on a list of approved international events where the highest standards of officiating and technical equipment can be guaranteed;
   The athlete had been subject to an agreed number of doping control tests in the months leading up to it;
   The doping control sample taken after the record was stored and available for re-testing for 10 years.
I'm not sure on this.
There's no doubt that many of the records were drug-assisted, but it means throwing out the good with the bad.

Olympic Marathon Gold Medalist Gets 4-Year Ban for Doping
Jemima Sumgong of Kenya and EPO, caught with an unannounced test, which seems to be the only way to catch the real cheats. If you tell them they're going to be tested, they either hide and claim they didn't hear the doorbell or else manage to flush their system
there doesn't seem to be any talk of stripping her of the 2016 olympic title
