Grandpa’s Juicing – 80-Year Old Weightlifter Busted For Doping.

80-year old weightlifter busted for doping.

Grandpas behaving badly. From ESPN:

“The latest target on the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s list: an 80-year-old weightlifter who was busted for steroids.

The agency that brought down Lance Armstrong announced a two-year suspension for Don Ramos of Colorado Springs, Colo., who tested positive for steroids while attempting to set a world record in his age group at the Pan American Masters Weightlifting Championships in June.

USADA was contracted to test at the event for athletes 35 and older. The suspension means Ramos can’t compete again until July 2015.

Organizers of masters events have been cracking down on doping. Two years ago, USADA suspended nine masters athletes for positive tests, including one in his 50s and three in their 60s.”

I can hear Mr. Ramos now, at the Anti-Doping Agency hearing: “Lifetime ban my hiney! I got something you can do with your lifetime ban… you can shove it down your pie hole.” [ESPN]
