What’s a horse to do!

First the Russians, now the horses! Apparently, Micheal Phelps isn’t the only sensation of Beijing Olympic’s. According to the National Post’s Sports section, four horses were expelled from showjumping final for doing drugs. Yep, these brutes were getting jiggy with it until somebody requested for a pee sample. The pail full of urine was taken and tests were done. The results “indicated the presence of capsaicin.. which is a lotion or paste derived from the chilli pepper plant.. prohibited for its pain-relieving properties.”.

I wonder what sort of pressure they were in.

On the same token, Congratulations on Tirunesh & Kenenisa’s latest victory. I can’t wait to hear what the Ethiopian Athletics Federation has gotta say regarding Ethio-born Turkey Athlete Elvan Abeylegesse. And the heated arguments that would follow 😉 . For all of you interested, here is 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics Final Medal Count.
