Cycling star tests positive
>From correspondents in Montreal
January 20, 2006

CANADIAN cyclist Genevieve Jeanson has been banned for life by USA Cycling 
after testing positive for blood-booster EPO.

Jeanson failed the test last July at the prologue of a stage race in 
Pennsylvania which she won.

The severity of the punishment was because of a prior misdemeanour in 2004 
when she failed to appear for a dope test at the request of the 
International Cycling Union at the end of the Fleche-Wallonne race in 
Belgium.

Jeanson however denied she had ever taken doping products. She said she 
would fight to clear her name but that she was retiring from the sport.

"It's over," she said. "I don't want anything to do with cycling. I'm tired 
of fighting and repeating that I have never taken EPO or any banned 
substance."

Jeanson was a member of the 2000 Canadian Olympic team though she competes 
with a racing license issued by USA Cycling.

Customs seizes performance enhancing drugs

Custom officers have intercepted a package containing performance enhancing 
drugs at the Sydney Mail Centre.

Five-hundred grams of testosterone have been found in a package from China.

It is the third drug seizure by Customs this week - performance enhancing 
drugs have also been intercepted in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Customs spokesman Richard Janeczko says there is no evidence to suggest the 
drugs were bound for Melbourne for use by athletes competing in the 
Commonwealth Games.

But he says a special program is in place to stop performance enhancing 
drugs from entering Australia in the lead-up to the Games.

"During this period leading into the Commonwealth Games and during the 
Commonwealth Games, we will definitely be alert to make sure the ... Games - 
as far as possible - will be clean of imported drugs of this kind," he said.

Boxer fights Games dope ban

A CHAMPION young Aboriginal boxer was hopeful last night that he could 
overturn a decision banning him from fighting at the Commonwealth Games 
after a court found he unwittingly and passively inhaled marijuana smoke.

National lightweight titleholder Anthony Little, who tested positive for 
cannabis after he won gold at the Commonwealth Games selection trials in 
Melbourne, told the Court of Arbitration for Sport yesterday that five days 
before the event, his two cousins smoked bongs in the car as the three 
travelled to an outback football game.

Little - who won gold despite boxing with a broken knuckle in his dominant 
hand - also told the court his father smoked cannabis in his Perth hotel 
room two weeks before the selection trials.

The court heard Little's father was a former alcoholic who used to wake the 
then 12-year-old Little at night to help him commit burglaries in his home 
town of Geraldton, four hours north of Perth.

Arbitrator John Winneke QC yesterday found Little was "an honest and fine 
young man" and ruled that the 25-year-old did not actively ingest marijuana, 
was not aware the substance was banned and that his "use" of cannabis in no 
way enhanced his performance when he won gold at the selection trials in 
August.

Little's barrister, Terry Forrest QC, said Boxing Australia should amend 
their selection criteria to allow Little - who many regard as Australia's 
best amateur boxer - to compete at the Games, which begin in Melbourne on 
March 15.

Mr Forrest said he would draft a submission asking Boxing Australia to amend 
their selection rules in the same way that the Australian Shooting 
Association did to allow Michael Diamond to compete at the 2004 Athens 
Olympics after being ruled ineligible for the first two rounds of selection 
trials. Diamond's gun licence had been suspended pending a court hearing on 
charges he had assaulted his then girlfriend and failed to secure one of his 
firearms properly. Both charges were later dismissed.

"The fact that, through bad luck, the best boxer in his division is in 
danger of being excluded is a matter of real concern," Mr Forrest said. 
"Anthony Little is a role model for thousands of Aboriginal children. His 
immediate future is in the hands of Boxing Australia."

Boxing Australia said yesterday it would consider Little's bid. "We want the 
best athletes in our team at the Commonwealth Games but the other side of 
the story is that we've set selection criteria - we've set an anti-doping 
policy," acting chief executive Simon Thompson said.

Coach Geoff Peterson said that since Little had tested positive for 
cannabis, the boxer's sponsors had abandoned him and he was almost bankrupt.

"He catches a bus to come to Perth to train - it's six hours on a bus from 
Geraldton," Mr Peterson said. But he added: "I won't give up on him."

Guest poised for doping hearing

Trainer Richard Guest will appear before the Jockey Club's disciplinary 
panel on Friday after one of his horses tested positive for banned 
substances.

Ooh Aah Camara was found to have phenylbutazone and oxyphenbutazone in her 
system after finishing seventh in the Albany Stakes at York on 17 June 2005.

Guest's hearing is complicated by a dispute between owner Willie McKay and 
the horse's former trainer Vicky Haigh, which arose after the horse moved to 
Guest's stable.

Haigh, who has since relinquished her training licence, has also been called 
before the Jockey Club panel.

She is accused of administering the drugs - also known as bute - to the 
horse without therapeutic justification and/or failing to inform Guest on 
the same day the three-year-old filly was transferred to his yard.

Ooh Aah Camara ran at York as a Guest horse.

Guest, who won the Grand National as a jockey on Red Maurader in 2001, has 
said he expects to receive the minimum fine.

Meanwhile, trainer Jamie Poulton also appears before the panel in connection 
with the vaccinations for his horse Theatre last year.

La Canadienne Geneviève Jeanson suspendue à vie, selon la presse

Agence France Presse Francais

Dateline: MONTREAL

MONTREAL, 19 jan 2006 (AFP) - La Canadienne Geneviève Jeanson a été 
suspendue à vie par la Fédération américaine de cyclisme à la suite d'un 
contrôle antidopage positif à l'érythropoïétine (EPO), affirme jeudi le 
quotidien québécois La Presse.

La jeune femme, âgée de 24 ans, a été contrôlée en juillet dernier lors du 
prologue du Tour de Toona en Pennsylvanie qu'elle avait remporté.

La sévérité de la mesure s'explique par les antécédents de son dossier. 
Geneviève Jeanson avait notamment omis de se présenter à un contrôle 
antidopage après la Flèche Wallonne 2004 et avait reçu un avertissement 
public de la part de l'Agence antidopage américaine (USADA).

En 2003, elle s'était vue interdire le départ de la course sur route des 
Championnats du monde de Hamilton (Canada) à cause d'un hématocrite 
supérieur à la norme. Le test de dépistage de l'EPO s'était cependant avéré 
négatif par la suite.

La Québécoise, double championne du monde juniors en 1999, affirme n'avoir 
jamais pris de produit dopant. Elle a indiqué à La Presse qu'elle allait se 
battre contre la décision la visant tout en annonçant qu'elle met fin à sa 
carrière.

"C'est fini. Je ne veux plus rien savoir du vélo. Je suis fatiguée de me 
battre, de répéter que je n'ai jamais pris d'EPO ni aucune substance 
interdite", a-t-elle dit au journal
