The Wang Way To Win

October 26th, 2009 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

Do you remember 21-year-old Wang Jing, a Chinese sprinter from last summer’s Beijing Olympics?

So Wang

So Wang

If not, it’s because she didn’t qualify for a second round heat in either of her races during those games, the 100m and 4x100m. You probably missed her.

Last week, however she celebrated gold in the 100m at the 11th Chinese National Games. And silver in the 200m! Dayum!

Today, it was annouced that Wang failed a drug test and was stripped of her gold medal. Worse, the Chinese Athletics Administration Center (CAAC)–China’s governing body for track and field–has BANNED WANG AND HER COACH FOR LIFE from competition.

What a shitty Monday, huh? First, FAILING. Then, banned for LIFE. Wang is never getting hugged by her parents again.

    But that was quite a leap. People got suspicious.
    ……………..

    It wasn’t quite a leap as far as her time in the 100-meter race. She didn’t qualify for the second round in the Beijing Olympics because she competed against the best, against athletes from more than 100 countries. She won the gold in the National because she competed against only her countrywomen.

    At any rate, track&field athletes are tested all year around, and they are tested after each race. Wang tested clean a few days earlier, which means that the PED got into her system just prior to her race. Either she and her coach are really stupid or they were set up by their enemy, for the performance enhance drugs that Wang was caught with are known to stay in one’s system for more than 4 to 6 months. These types of PED are popular with guys working out at the gym, but not with elite athletes who want to cheat. There are so many better options available to cheaters.
