Irish rider stripped of gold for positive doping test

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/othe...an/4383239.stm

The International Equestrian Federation have ordered Irish showjumper Cian O'Connor to give back his Olympic gold at a hearing into doping allegations.

O'Connor's horse tested positive for prohibited substances and after an 11 hour hearing he was disqualfied.

======================

I thought this was funny, compared to cycling... it's not the rider that was on drugs, it was the horse!

did you guys ever read those two articlea bout animal doping someone posted a long time ago? One was about people giving utter steriods to prize dairy cows to enlarge their utters for showing, and the second was about belgian racing pigeons . . . over half of the ones tested were positive for anabolic steriods. Kinda funny, but kinda sad
