Anti-Doping News

For those thousands -- nay, millions! -- of dedicated Superblog readers who are waiting to see the Paris Golden League on tape-delay today (OLN, 3-4 PM Eastern), I'll put off dissecting the meet and its effects on our fantasy league until tommorrow.

Of course you already know that Marion Jones is running well again. Previously I have highlighted her shady connections. Now comes news that Aziz Zakari has tested positive for stanozolol (aka Winstrol, the drug that busted Ben Johnson and Rafael Palmiero). Zakari's coach is Steve Riddick, who also coaches Myriam Mani (just back from a 2-year suspension), the strangely-muscular Tonique Williams-Darling, and guess who else? Yep, Marion Jones. Zakari is now her twelfth training partner with a positive test.
