U.S. senators bring bill to punish those who participate in doping schemes

Two U.S. senators have introduced a bill that would criminalize international doping conspiracies, the likes of which Russia pursued during the Sochi Olympics in 2014.
The measure is named after Grigory Rodchenkov, the Moscow lab director who blew the whistle on Russian cheating. It is similar to a bill introduced in the House earlier this year but is given a better chance of passing in part because it focuses on large-scale corruption and eliminates language that would put individuals in jeopardy for smaller offenses.
Sponsored by Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-Rhode Island, the bill calls for fines of up to $1 million and prison sentences of up to 10 years for those who participate in schemes designed to influence international sports competitions through doping.

2018 in review...

In the World Powerlifting Congress, we focus on the lifter and create paths for lifting extreme weight. Safety in our number one concern! Than realistic, standardized rules and structure. Unlike other powerlifting organizations, the WPC addresses all the concerns and input of the athlete. A record set in our organization is the gold standard for the rest of the World! At every International Championship, International Officials are on hand to insure the integrity of the accepted rules!

We encourage innovation in training methods, we encourage innovation in equipment design per the rules, and we encourage innovation in sports medicine. The DO NOT encourage any unlawful activity!

...it has been a great year....and 2019 we be better!!!!

Thank You,
Mike Sweeney
President

IOC...what a group of assholes!

Swim meet canceled after FINA's threat to ban athletes

GENEVA -- Amid growing conflict between swimmers and their world governing body, an international swimming meet was canceled on Thursday after threats to ban athletes who took part seeking better prize money.
The Italian swim federation called off the Dec. 20-21 competition it was organizing in Turin, saying it acted to protect athletes from FINA.
The Turin meet was linked to a proposed International Swimming League, a privately run operation that aims to operate outside of FINA's control and pay higher prize money.
"FINA declared the event 'non-approved,' threatening sanctions against the participating athletes," Italian officials said in a statement.
FINA, based in Lausanne, Switzerland, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Some Olympic champions have long criticized FINA, believing swimmers should be better rewarded, have more say in decisions and could create their own union.

I saw a lot of this stuff handed out....

News you can use...

The B Resort does not provide transport from MCO to the Hotel. Cheapest, depending on how many travelers in your party, is to book a Shared Van in advance with Mears Transportation. They have a Website. A taxi will cost you between $50 and $60 - you can catch a van taxi or a regular taxi for the same price at the Airport.
When you are at the Hotel and need a Taxi to go to the Theme Parks or back to MCO at the end of your trip, be careful to ask for a regular taxi. The hotels tend to use Limousine Drivers when guests request a taxi and they tend to be about 20% more expensive than a regular taxi with a meter running in my experience.
over a year ago

...PLEASE make a list of all the equipment you are bringing to 2018 WPC Worlds in ORLANDO!!...it is going to be WARM!
