Vijay Gets a Whiff of New Zealand
Way back in February 01, 2013 I wrote a post with the above headline, “Vijay Gets a Whiff of New Zealand,” and quoted Tom English at The Scotsman who wrote that, "Vijay Singh has admitted using banned deer antler spray."
It’s now May 12, 2016 and only now the lawyers are beginning to lock horns and Pete Madden writes, “In a pre-trial conference at the New York State Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, Justice Eileen Bransten sided with Singh's lawyer Peter Ginsberg on the issue of confidentiality, a signal that sanctions issued under the PGA Tour's Anti-Doping Program could soon enter the public record… While Bransten indicated that she was comfortable continuing to withhold the names of offending golfers, she said that identifying other instances of the program's application, including the names of the drugs that triggered them, was central to Singh's claim.”
More than just using a spray
In a fascinating Sports Illustrated article dated February 14, 2013 “The Zany Story of Two Self Ordained Sports Science Entrepreneurs,” we learn that, “He (VJ) says he uses the spray banned by the PGA "every couple of hours . . . every day," sleeps with the beam ray on and has put chips on his ankles, waist and shoulders. "I'm looking forward to some change in my body," Singh says. "It's really hard to feel the difference if you're only doing it for a couple of months."
And it’s really hard for me to believe some of the things the Two Self Ordained Sports Science Entrepreneurs have come up with to allegedly assist sportsmen and women to restore or enhance their performances.
Come to think of it I can’t recall any mention of women in this extensive article. Which makes sense since they are the more sensible of the Homo sapiens.
