Its also wellknown that doping technology is always one step (or more) ahead, from anti-doping technology. The rules of the game dictate that doped is only the ones caught as such. Till then, we can only applaud the achievement and not question it.

I was watching the Danish women's field hockey team play a game. Those women belong in Vogue and not on the sports field. They are just too damn hot.

They are just too damn hot.times have changed.Only time I've really seen women's field hockey players in action was when we used to do track workouts at a university and there was artificial turf inside the track on which the university women's team were practising, and those ones could have stood to lose a few lbs
