Athletics roiled by mass doping allegations after leak | Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR Leaks of confidential doping data threw global athletics into chaos on Sunday, after a newspaper and a broadcaster said a third of medals in Olympic and world championship endurance races from 2001-2012 were won by runners with suspicious blood. Britain's Sunday Times and Germany's ARD/WDR broadcaster said they had obtained the secret data from the vaults of the global athletics governing body, the IAAF, supplied by a whistleblower "disgusted" by the extent of doping. The news organisations said they had shown the data to two experts, who concluded that track and field endurance events were in the same dire state as cycling had been at the peak of a doping scandal that nearly destroyed that sport, when American Lance Armstrong was stripped of seven Tour de France victories. #Business #India #Latin America #markets #Olympics #Ukraine #United Kingdom

Sport rocked by wild doping allegations | Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR The world of athletics was rocked on Sunday by "wild" doping allegations involving hundreds of suspect blood samples, just as global sports leaders were meeting in Malaysia. International Olympic Committee members and sports federation chiefs woke to the news that IAAF test data had been leaked to news organisations and that it allegedly showed suspect samples from athletes, including Olympic and world championship medallists. Britain's Sunday Times newspaper and German broadcaster ARD/WDR say they were given access to the results of over 12,000 blood tests provided by more than 5,000 athletes over 11 years in a case that could plunge athletics into a new doping crisis. #Business #Cycling #Latin America #Russia #United Kingdom

Biden, aides talking with supporters about possible presidential run - NYT | Reuters

WASHINGTON Vice President Joe Biden, inspired in part by his late son, has been holding meetings at his Washington home to discuss challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, the New York Times reported on Saturday. Biden has said publicly he would make a decision at the end of the summer but the Times said the vice president and his associates were actively exploring getting in the race. The Times, citing several people who have spoken with him and his advisers, said the Biden camp was contacting Democratic leaders and donors who have not firmly committed to Clinton, the clear leader among the five Democrats who have entered the race, or might be concerned about her prospects #Election #markets #opinion #science #United States

The Great Indian Hanging: In death, Yakub Memon exposed our enormous hunger for the macabre

On second thoughts, Yakub could have insisted on live telecast of his own death. Maybe nobody told Yakub that his ailing mother won't be able to make it to the 'phansi yard' of the Nagpur jail in time and he was wasting his last wish. #1993 Mumbai blasts #Capital punishment #CriticalPoint #Death Penalty #Death sentence #Indian Execution #islamic-state #Jihadi John #Yakub #Yakub Memon
