My point is, if chambers had served his time (ban/suspension) then once that was finished he should be allowed to compete. Rehabilitate, that's the name of the game.
The 1904 Olympic marathon was the slowest and possibly the worst marathon in Olympic history.The event was held under adverse conditions with 90° heat and a difficult course where little water was available for the runners.During the race drugs and alcohol were openly administered to runners; dogs chased runners from the course;the apparent winner was disqualified for riding part of the way in an automobile
Chambers was caught and has to serve his punishment, nobody is disputing that. But there is a need to Rehabilitate. If a prisoner uses his time locked up to better himself and get an education, when he is released do we allow him to use that education and knowledge to better himself and thus reduce the risk of him reoffending, or kick him in the nuts and say tough cookie sunny?
Paul - that's a bit of a spurious argument, if you don't mind my saying so.
Diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. Glucose comes from the digestion of starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, chapatis, yams and plantain, from sugar and other sweet foods, and from the liver which makes glucose.Insulin is vital for life. It is a hormone produced by the pancreas, that helps the glucose to enter the cells where it is used as fuel by the body.
