Revealed as dopingsvindler: OLYMPIC legend gets four years in quarantine

was Once langrendsløber Andrus Veerpalu a national hero. Now, he is a scammer.

For he shows himself to be implicated in the scandal at the winter OLYMPICS in Seefeld, where several athletes were taken to be a part of the dopingringen by the name of Operation Aderlass.

One of them is, thus, Estonian Andrus Veerpalu, who even before is smoked in dopingfælden. At the time he was acquitted, and therefore he continued to be a national symbol of Estonia.

But now it may be over.

A change in The International ski association (FIS) make the namely, that it is not only practitioners, but also the staff around that can be judged to be a part of the dopingsnyd. It has thus obtained Veerpalu, who (at least once) was one of langrendssportens great figures.

He has won OLYMPIC gold and WORLD championship gold two times in the classic cross-country skiing.

Exactly what he is punished for, is not reported out. However, what is clear is that there is talk of a breach of anti-doping rules, and that he is involved as a leader, tells antidopingchef in F sharp, Sarah Fussek, according to the Newspaper.no.

Connected is not yet ready with a clearing.

It is not the first time that esterens dark past catches up with him. Already in 2011, he was excluded three years to deliver a test before the WORLD cup in 2011, which revealed a use of growth hormones.

But then proclaimed his innocence and was acquitted in 2013, saved by a procedural error. There were errors in the use of thresholds in the test method for the growth hormones at The International ski association.

The International court of arbitration for sport (CAS) was therefore of the view that the FIS' method could not be used as evidence. Actually ended up FIS also to pay a compensation of about 45,000 Danish kroner to the Veerpalu.

It is not more than a few months ago, the 48-year-old Veerpalu won a opvisningsløb.
