Odesnik fined for importing HGH

http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news?...v=ap&type=lgns

BRISBANE, Australia (AP)—An Australian court has fined American tennis player Wayne Odesnik for importing human growth hormone into the country.

The 24-year-old Odesnik, ranked No. 98 in the world, was stopped by customs officers as he arrived in Australia in January ahead of the Brisbane International and Australian Open. Eight vials, each containing 6 milligrams of HGH, were found among his baggage.

Odesnik, 24, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday to importing the hormone and was fined $7,280 plus $1,040 in court costs.

The matter is now expected to be referred to the International Tennis Federation and Odesnik faces a possible two-year ban for possession of a prohibited substance.

Odesnik reached the quarterfinals at Brisbane before and the second round of the Australian Open.

I was just going to say that I think Odesnik should get a harsher punishment than this, but yeah even the ITF hasn't looked at it yet.

Re: Odesnik fined for importing HGH

Since HGH can't be detected by controls I suspect Odesnik is not the only player to use it

Re: Odesnik fined for importing HGH

lmao that didn't take long. Nice work Guillermo!

A bunch of players are probably on that stuff, seeing as it's undetectable at this point. Well actually there is a test for it finally, but we're unsure of the accuracy and it isn't widely used yet.

Re: Odesnik fined for importing HGH

Well it's apparent that HGH does not help tennis players that much..

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Odesnik fined for importing HGH

Hmmmmm

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
