"The Norwegian Olympic delegation has brought around 6000 doses of asthma medication to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics"
what's their problem
It's just a coincidence
TEST THE INHALERS
THE TRUTH IS HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT
so what do you think we use the asthma medication for. diabetes?
if we take away their inhalors will they lose?
OAAN (Olympic Athletes with Asthma from Norway) when ?
it would be extremely painful
You're a big guy...
3.4 doses for every athlete every day...
and not all athletes take it, not all are there every day
totally normal btw
Dude it's fucking legal. They got a doctor to say they have athsma. It's not their fault they have socialized medicine!
Y'all salty af. Norway's been killing it in the winter olympics since before inhalers were invented and y'all tryin to blame it on that?
You belong in the same place as the Pats fags who try to claim that pass to Foles was illegal formation.
In 2022, everyone would depend on inhalers.
Cyclists have been depending on it for decades, what took so long for the rest of the sports to jump on the train?
Though I'm pretty sure other sports jumped on it long ago, but for some reasons someone decided to bring some lights on it now
I was just joking around desu, don't really care about their asthma. They are without a doubt one of the best countries in the winter olympics.
Ventolin relaxes the muscles in the lungs to open up the airways and make breathing easier. Not surprised athletes are using it in high pressure situations or when they have physical exertion.
No one cared who they were until they won Olympic Gold
they're a traditionally very strong winter sport country
Just like your country
To be fair we have pretty bad air quality here. Chinese pollution is mostly to blame.
Most athletes do have asthma of some sort, most people do
The thing is that mild asthma only emerges when you're pushing your lungs to the absolute limit which is why you see a lot of endurance athletes diagnosed
Norway is as far as I know the only country that has voluntarily given the media the entire list of medications brought with them to the Olympics. We have nothing to hide.
It's LEGAL for a reason, you know. Just saying. It's a non-issue.
Beats every healthy person in marathon distance
at least i dont have squinted eyes
The whole point of an inhaler is to stop asthma being an issue who mong
What we're talking about here is exercise-induced asthma.
Well, being Asian is better than being a fucking s*rb. Don't you have some rats to eat, third worlder?
it was a joke you fat piece of shit
they literally choke
no your dog ate them so when your dog shits it before you eat him you will have a dessert as well
It's not normal astma. It's a type of breathing problems caused by extreme amount of training in cold temperatures.
But why is the asthma medicine such a big deal to you? Why do you think it's ALLOWED for everyone, including completely healthy athletes, to take asthma medicine? WADA don't give a shit, why do you? You're being fooled by word of mouth here on Cred Forums that it's some sort of way of cheating. But it's not.
Peak human condition
Has problems with extreme amount of training in cold temperatures
They are pushing the limits on what a human body is meant to withstand.
Babby tier lung condition. I have Bronchiectasis. Cough up piss yellow crap every day.
If it were a meme, they wouldn't be using it.
What does it do exactly? I had heard about it for cutting before. Does it just "open up" your lungs like ammonia?
come on bro it's just chapstick
They are using it because they get breathing problems of the cold conditions they are training in. It's not only Norway, mind you, it's Sweden and Finland as well.
Why don't American or Canadian athletes suffer from it?
Because you guys are on more advanced types of dope
What a gay post this is fuck off
This is probably true
They do actually.
But what do you think you know about the medicine that WADA don't know? Honestly if you do a little research you will see that they are saying it's a non-issue. Even if you give it to a completely healthy althete with no breathing problems whatsoever, they will tell you that it's allowed. That is because their research have shown that it is not performance enhancing. Doctors are claiming the same. If you beg to differ I guess you must make the case to WADA. I'm sorry but the reality is that Cred Forums cares about this stuff 100000% more than WADA does.
Like Jessie Diggins, your best female XC skier of all time, and Alex Harvey, the best Canadian XC-skier of all time.
why is asthma medication controlled substances in sports, when they're not performance enhancing? are they dangerous?
All the elite Olympic athletes dope, right?
It doesn’t remove the physiology of asthmatics though.
Asthma helps you breathe, doesn’t mean it fixes your dodgy lungs and athletic handicap.
Which means that these athletes aren’t really as asmatics but using the medication through a legal loophole.
all athletes full stop mate
nigel with the science.
When I went to Norway to visit my cousins their gym required amateur Olympic lifters to do pee tests for anabolics.
This was for a local competition involving absolute beginners who couldn't jerk 100kg.
Well, Norway did it by bring 6000 inhalers at once. A bit excessive.
I suppose nobody thinks it matters at all that the Norwegian skiiers are spending some 30% more hours training than other skiing nations (this was relatively to Sweden, a nation that itself is training more than USA and other nations when it comes to cross country skiing)
We also spend 4 times as much money on the sport, recruiting and developing talents all over Norway. We have an absurd skiing culture in Norway.
But I suppose this has nothing to do with it?
Did you know, the best female cross country skiier in the world right now is probably the Swedish Charlotte Kalla? She used to be one of the skiiers that are stuck in the dust behind the Norwegian skiiers, but then she started training with the Norwegian national team. She stated that she was shocked by the amount of hours we spend training, and really impressed by our techniques. Now she has been training with us for a couple of years, and especially now before the olympics. And guess what, she is now the very best. I'm guessing the training payed off. Or do you think that the increased amount of training did nothing, and instead she developed asthma?
Asthma is basically an allergic reaction, your lungs aren't in bad shape
If it doesn't enhance performance why do they take it?
Why shouldn't athletes be able to use inhalers? Its pushes the limits of the sport and has no lasting effects on the body
It is not normal asthma! Nobody is talking about the same type of asthma as you are now.
And it's not a loophole anyway, everyone is allowed to use the medicine even if they don't have any breathing problems. It's LEGAL and ALLOWED by the rules WADA determines about drugs and medicines.
Because they have breathing problems. The ones without breathing problems don't take it.
Meldonium doesn't have any negative lasting effects on body.
So it does enhance performance for those with breathing problems?
I'd venture upwards of 80% do in some form. Doping and detection is a cat-and-mouse game, in that the better the detection methods get the more undetectable the drugs become.
The biggest problem in world sport right now is that we have all of these anti-doping associations that work at a grassroots level to combat doping in sport. If everyone bought into the idea of "clean sport", then the system would work. But the problem is, they don't want the system to work. They want their athletes to be doped up so they perform above their normal abilities, but at the same time not get caught.
Nope, ours are clean.
It will make them breathe normally yes. But it won't give them some kind of miracle stamina.
Therapeutic Use Exemptions, brah. Therapeutic Use Exemptions.
norwegians are buttblasted in literally every thread about this
This is getting old
To be clear, I'm not saying Norwegians or athletes from othter countries are clean from dope. I'm not surprised if everyone is taking something.
I'm just saying that the asthma thingy is a meme.
Yes, I will admit that I'm getting sick of this meme.
in literally every thread made by buttblasted foreigners
go on nootropics kick
feel fucking amazing
run fastest 800m ever
switch to distance
half way through 5000m and heart starts to flutter
pass out on track
Maybe I ordered from the wrong source but I noticed that it made my heart act strange during distance running.
How would you feel if Sweden did great in something, and everyone were just spewing shit about you? It's actually not fun at all to watch olympics because of Cred Forums. I've been following ice hockey instead because everything Norway does is just being kicked down by Swedes or any other nation we care about. *shrugs*
How would you feel if Sweden did great in something, and everyone were just spewing shit about you?
They would be spewing shit about us no matter what the context is lmao. Stop replying to shitty bait threads.
That's the price of being the leaders of medal count if you are not UK, US, Canada or Germany
nah mate, we nordics usually root for other nordics if not competing against each other
I never spew shit about sweden when you are doing great. I actually congratulated you for Kalla because she did great. Even if I wanted the gold for my own nation, I wasn't going to shit on you for winning.
What the fuck? Biathletes get to wear contact lenses if they have poor vision?? Where's the outrage?
No, that's slander.
t. Dr. Fuentes
tfw you buy clenbuterol off the darkweb then go cycling with your mates and absolutely paste them
sounds like being American
when you have success in something, people always want to tear you down and bring you to their level
crying about >us dominating them
I unironically might do this.
cough cough cough
Prepare to get juicy
They do. Watch people doing marathon skiing events in the US. Everyone here has an inhaler.
not gonna lie, as someone with bad asthma it does feel good to see olympians using inhalers.
asthmatics are the true masterrace. transhumanism ftw
She had it coming.
You'd think asthmatics wouldn't be able to get anywhere near the top wouldn't you
I've been tested too and I don't even compete at a national level yet. AntiDoping Norway are fucking nazis.
To me, this says that it does not contain stuff that would be considered doping.
it's a performance enhancing stimulant
it would be incredibly painful
a lot of american posts on Cred Forums read like its their first day ever on an imageboard
Not proven. Everybody uses them though. Even diggins...
the biggest problem in world sport is doping
Have you ever used an inhaler? It's invigorating to say the least.
Diggins gets a pass
Should the athletes ski with blocked airways to even the playing field then.. Im not a fan of how the treatment has been handled by the management, and not a fan of the leadership in the ski organization in Norway. And they knew they gave 10x the legal dose and blaming it on a flaw in the ruleset. They fixed the ruleset now, and look at how reduced the worst abuser is (sundby).
Going out of your way to tell everyone you’re not going to cheat when no one asks
Sounds like they have something to hide
I think all doping and PEDs should be legal, I'm just saying this stuff IS a performance enhancing tool, one of many all of these people use. I still think talent rises to the top; Norway isn't blasting the rest of the world just because of asthma inhalers.
