Russian athletes exonerated but ignored in the West

Russian athletes exonerated but ignored in the West:

A major revelation in the CAS decision is that Richard McLaren, whose reports have formed the basis for banning Russians from the last two Olympics, has qualitatively changed his claim against Russian athletes.

Last year, the Disciplinary Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC DC) issued rulings that 44 Russian athletes were guilty of Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.

Many of these athletes had been preparing intensely for the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Some 39 Russian athletes quickly filed appeals to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), claiming their innocence. The hearings proceeded rapidly.

You can’t beat the beet for muscle recovery: Scientists reveal how the superfood heals muscle damage

You can’t beat the beet for muscle recovery: Scientists reveal how the superfood heals muscle damage:

Drinking beetroot juice may help attenuate muscle damage following strenuous physical activities, British scientists revealed in a recent study.

As part of the study, a team of researchers at the University of Northumbria in the U.K. recruited 30 active men aged 18 to 28 years who work out at least twice a week. The participants were instructed to do 100 intensive jump exercises to induce leg muscle damage.

The men were then given either 250 ml beetroot juice, 125 ml beetroot juice, or a placebo over the next three days. The placebo drink contained as much calories and carbohydrates as the beetroot juice.

“Three days of consuming the higher beetroot juice dose enhanced participants’ recovery. Those in the beetroot juice group jumped an average of 18 per cent higher than those in the placebo group two days after completing the exercise bout,” lead researcher Dr. Tom Clifford said in a Daily Mail article.

#Breaking2: Kenyan runner comes agonizingly close to sub 2-hour marathon (VIDEO):

Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge narrowly missed out on becoming the first person to run a marathon in under two hours when he posted a time of 2:00.25 at the Monza Grand Prix circuit in Italy.

The hashtag #Breaking2 is currently trending online as marathon fans, who had been glued to the live streams of the event on Twitter and Facebook, heap praise on the runner.

“I can say it is possible for a human to run under the two-hour mark. This journey has been good. It has been hard,” Kipchoge said on completing the run Saturday morning. “It has taken seven good months of preparation but I am happy to have done that. I think this is history.”

Despite beating the world record time of 2:02.57, set by fellow Kenyan, Dennis Kimetto, Kipchoge’s time does not count as a world record due to the use of in-out pacemakers – a group of 20 runners deployed to keep the pace necessarily quick and shield the attempted record breaker from wind.
