cluding waivers from 2007, 2008 and 2009 for drugs that then were more closely regulated but which athletes can now take freely Antworten

PARIS -- Somewhere in Russia, computer hackers must be congratulating themselves on a well-executed con.By stealing and then publishing the private medical files of more than 120 international athletes from a World Anti-Doping Agency database, the self-described Fancy Bears hack team has diverted attention from Russias systemic abuse of banned performance-enhancing drugs in sport, the biggest doping scandal since East German officials fed powerful steroids to teenagers during the Cold War.The hackers tactic, used by tricksters everywhere, of waving one hand so people forget what the other is doing, has worked spectacularly. In July and August, sport was focused on how to punish Russia for a government-sanctioned program of doping and deception detailed by successive WADA probes. Russian track and field athletes, with one exception, missed the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro as a result, and Russia was banned outright from the Paralympic Games.But now, in part because of the hackers mischief-making, the spotlight has shifted to non-Russian athletes whose data was stolen and onto WADA itself, left red-faced by the electronic intrusion.Instead of focusing single-mindedly on how to wean Russia off its cheating addiction and protect Russian youngsters from being strong-armed into regimens of needles and pills, sport has been fed a red herring, sucked into debate about whether the global anti-doping system is fit for purpose. Olympic leaders meet this Saturday to discuss WADAs future.If they listen carefully, perhaps theyll hear bears in the background, chuckling.The hackers must not have the last laugh. Its time to call time on their scam.For starters, the stolen info theyve published is not, as they claim on their website, sensational proof that non-Russian athletes have been doping with WADAs backing. Quite the opposite: Its proof that sport has a system in place that allows athletes, like the rest of us, to take medicines we need.Take, for example, Kathleen Baker, who won a relay gold medal and individual silver in Rio. The American swimmer has Crohns disease, a chronic inflammation of the digestive tract that causes persistent diarrhea, bleeding, weight loss, cramps and other symptoms.Swimmings governing body granted Baker medical waivers to take anti-inflammatory steroids that normally would be banned for athletes in competition. Her waivers were among more than 200 stolen and published by the Fancy Bears. Others got waivers to treat asthma, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and other recognized medical conditions. Several have waivers allowing them to carry emergency syringes of adrenaline, a stimulant banned for athletes in competition but which can be life-saving for sufferers of severe allergic reactions.Such people really have to have adrenaline handy; if you dont you can die, Ken Fitch, an Australian sports doctor with long experience of the waiver system, said in an interview.Such exemptions, in short, bear zero relation to the elaborate, hard-core doping schemes that operated in Russia, since exposed by two WADA-commissioned investigations, with designer cocktails of banned steroids, dirty athletes drug-test samples made to disappear and replaced with supposedly clean ones, and the Russian FSB security agency part of the plot, seemingly finding a way to pop open what were meant to be tamper-proof sample bottles.Also important: A large slice of the Fancy Bears leak is outdated, including waivers from 2007, 2008 and 2009 for drugs that then were more closely regulated but which athletes can now take freely within reason, because they are no longer considered potentially performance-enhancing if not abused.These include common asthma medications. Of the 127 athletes whose information was stolen and released so far, 53 had prescriptions for asthma inhalers and anti-inflammatory steroid injections into joints, not muscles. Today, these treatments dont require waivers, because WADAs rules have evolved with science.In short, in many cases, the Fancy Bears are peddling moldy fluff, not proof of anything untoward.WADA, based in Canada, says it has been told by law enforcement agencies that the hacks originated from Russia. Russian authorities dispute the allegation. Tony Brenton, formerly Britains top diplomat in Moscow, says Russia has a record of disinformation campaigns designed to distract from its own behavior.Im sure that all this hacking, whether officially sanctioned or not, is aimed by patriotic Russians to demonstrate that they are not the ones guilty of doping, Brenton said in an interview. They are very good at putting up these rival narratives designed to obscure what are obvious truths.A few of the Therapeutic Use Exemption certificates raised eyebrows and necessary questions about whether the waiver system is too easily gamed by unscrupulous athletes seeking banned drugs for performance enhancement, not medical need.Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins found himself having to explain waivers for corticosteroid injections in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He says they were to prevent chronic hay fever. Fitch says that of all of the leaked TUEs, thats one of the ones that really, really concerned me.Im not saying that he did it for performance enhancement, but it was a TUE that wouldnt stand scrutiny today, he said.Still, its a giant leap from there to the far bigger and more pressing problem of doping run amok in Russia.So beware of those bears.---John Leicester is an international sports columnist for The Associated Press.

In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey gambled on the opening play, wanting to send a message to his Titans to be as aggressive as possible.They didnt recover the onside kick.The Titans did little else wrong the rest of the game.Marcus Mariota threw for 295 yards and four touchdowns and the Titans routed Green Bay 47-25 Sunday.Five different Titans scored a touchdown in the first half as Tennessee put together its best scoring performance this season with 35 points.With the win, the Titans (5-5) also matched the five victories over the past two seasons combined.We felt like this was a game we had to make a statement about our team, said Mularkey, who alerted his Titans on Saturday night of trying to steal a possession at the start.The defense forced the Packers three-and-out after the onside kick. Then DeMarco Murray took the Titans opening play from scrimmage, running 75 yards for a touchdown . He finished with 123 yards and also threw a TD pass, becoming the first non-quarterback to do that for this franchise in the same game since Earl Campbell on Sept. 7, 1980, for the then-Houston Oilers.Brian Orakpo had two of Tennessees five sacks, and the Titans also forced three turnovers .The Packers (4-5) started a three-game road swing by losing their third straight. Green Bay has lost four of five in dropping below .500 for the first time since Aaron Rodgers first year as a starter back in 2008.We dug ourselves a huge, huge hole, and frankly it comes down to the basics of football, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said.It comes down to the basics of football. We werent nearly to the standard that we expect from one another.Rodgers and Mariota came into this game tied for the most TD passes in the NFL over the previous five weeks with 13. Rodgers threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns, and he also ran for another.But Mariota completed his first 10 passes as Tennessee jumped on Green Bay, and he completed TD passes of 9, 32, 6 and 33 -- each to a different receiver.Mariota has 21 TD passes this season, becoming the first Titans quarterback with at least 20 TD passes in a season since 2003 when Steve McNair threw 24 and split the NFL MVP award that yearr with Peyton Manning.ddddddddddddTo even be mentioned among Steve McNair, especially around here, is an honor, Mariota said.STUNNING FIRST QUARTERThe Titans botched the first play of the game with an onside kick that went straight to the Packers. That was one of only two blemishes in the opening quarter. Tennessee outgained the Packers 231-26 in the first quarter and led 21-0. Murray cut inside left tackle Taylor Lewan and outraced everyone to the end zone for his longest TD this season, and he capped the next drive with a 10-yard TD pass to Delanie Walker .PACKERS HOLEGreen Bay trailed by as much as 35-10 before a late TD in the first half. It was the Packers biggest deficit in the first half of a game started by Rodgers, topping a 21-point deficit against the Giants in 2012.MURRAYS DAYThe Titans running back also matched Campbell for the franchise record with a rushing TD in his fifth straight game. Campbell set the mark in 1979. Murray came into Sunday as the NFLs second-leading rusher with 807 yards and a sore toe on his right foot that limited him in practice this week. He got his fifth 100-yard rushing game this season against a Green Bay defense that had been the NFLs stingiest against the run, allowing just 75.8 yards per game.OUT OF HEREThe Titans led only 7-0 when they lost left tackle Taylor Lewan. On the first play of their second drive, Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion was flagged for going unabated to the quarterback, and Lewan was arguing with Guion when back judge Steve Freeman tried to break it up. Lewan appeared on replays to knock Freemans hand away, and he was ejected for contacting an official. He was replaced by Dennis Kelly.Mularkey said he alerted his team that referee Jeff Triplettes crew had ejected five players already this season.UP NEXT:Packers: Remain on the road, facing the Washington Redskins.Titans: Travel to Indy to face the AFC South rival Colts.---For more NFL coverage: and Teresa M.
