US coach claims doping the “biggest threat” to swimming competition at Rio 2016

first_imgThis follows the surfeit of doping-related controversies in the sport, including allegations this month that Russian anti-doping officials unsuccessfully requested money in return for covering up failed drug tests registered ahead of London 2012.Particular concerns have been raised in relation to Russian and Chinese swimmers, with world champion Yuliya Efimova and Olympic gold medal winning counterpart Sun Yang among leading athletes to be implicated.Efimova suffered the second failure of career after testing positive for meldonium in March, but has had her suspension provisionally lifted due to an admission that “more reasearch” is required to assess how long the substance – only banned on January 1 – remains in the human body.Allegations of state sponsored doping in other sports in Russia has heightened fears in recent weeks.”It’s the biggest threat to who should win the medals,” said Marsh ahead of the US Olympic Trials.”It’s the biggest threat to the integrity of the Games.”He described the effects of doping as a “complete game-changer” particularly in women’s events.”With a little bit of extra testosterone, it’s a giant advantage.”Many members of US team admitted to being concerned by possible doping by rivals ahead of the Games.”It’s really disappointing,” freestyle superstar Katie Ledecky told Associated Press.”I think we’re all happy that people are getting caught and they’re being a little tougher on things.”Hopefully, that will continue and we can all feel confident going in that we’re competing against clean athletes.”US swimmers have been implicated in doping scandals themselves, with breaststroke and freestyle star Jessica Hardy serving a one-year ban after failing a test in 2008 before returning in time to win a medley relay gold at London 2012.last_img read more

Quincy B Is ‘Crazy in Love’

first_imgYoung Liberian Afro, Pop and R& B hits maker Quincy L Burrowes, aliased Quincy B, will in three weeks drop his latest single, “Crazy In love”. It opens with a rollicking tune and has a better use of instruments.  Its most glamorous phrase, “I’m goin’ crazy”, creates a deep impression, though the real message lies in the song. Produced by Quincy B himself, now just 21, the artist’s vocal ability is prolific; he sings in variety of genres and has attracted fans and admires from all walks of life.Since his debut back in 2013 with the hit song “My Dream,” alongside Scientific, he has managed to maintain his spot by producing a number of musical hits.“This is the first time I’m in love and don’t know how to express it,” says Quincy. “So I think expressing it through music will let my fans know that Quincy has fallen in love; and I’m just trying to appreciate my fiancée for the love she is giving me. This song is to let people know that you can’t just fall in love with anybody; make sure you find the right person. Even if you are broken-hearted, be inspired that someday you will find the right person,” he added with a smile and, to add fire to his comments, sang a few lines:‘My only Jue da you I want oo, I na want know weting dey can say about u ooo. Dey say love is blind, but my own I can see it clear ooo.” Quincy B says music is demanding. But he has promised to do his best in satisfying his fans and the public with as good music as possible. He says music is his life and can’t remember a day when he’s thought of quitting, as he has come a long way and when things were tough.Quincy B is awaiting admission to the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU), having had success in passing the university’s recent entrance exams.  He said achieving higher education is important in keeping one’s dream alive and thanks God that it is about to happened.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
