Just say no! The Austrian Ski Federation is for sure saying no to dope at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in February. The Austrian Olympic Committee was fined a million smackaroons in 2006 for failing to prevent the doping that occurred at the Games in Turin. The cross country skiing team and the biathlon team were both caught doing it.

So, to help insure something like that won’t happen again, the Austrian Ski Federation hosted an anti-doping workshop today in Innsbruck. Among those present were International Cycling Union doctor Mario Zorzoli, Austrian national anti-doping agency director Andreas Schwab, and about 80 other doctors, physiotherapists and trainers.
