Yannick Noah suspects Spain's success a fraud.
 
Yannik Noah says that Spain's athletes are "protected" by the Spanish authorities, leading to more doping by Spanish athletes than other countries (yes, we know, the politically correct response is "they all do it").

I guess he does have a point, wasn't there a big cover-up for Contador saying that he'd eaten "contaminated meat" and he was freed of all charges or something like that?

Was that cover-up because he was Spanish though? Seems like a typical French newspaper type of article. They always have things like this in there.

Who the hell is "The Delta World'' and how can they have a website in English with news from around the world, but not have anybody that speaks English on the staff? The writing is so bad it does not even make sense.

The Spanish authorities, especially the ones in cycling, are absolutely bananas indeed though... they did clear Contador because of the contaminated meat hypothesis, and his case is being heard next week in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. He might just escape though, since several sportsmen have been declared non-guilty after testing positive for the same substance. Not that I believe his excuse...

However, two days ago the same Spanish federation banned another Spanish rider, Mosquera, with the harshest punishment: 2 years, despite testing positive for a substance that is not really performance enhancing and not really in the list of true "positive substances".

They make no sense...

Well, when this was published just a few weeks afterwards a german table tennis player Dimitrij Ovtcharov had the same excuse.
It was funny how the german media reacted. Whilst Contador was clearly found guilty in all newspapers Ovtcharov was a victim of criminals who poisoned some meat.

The same pattern can be found when it comes to wintersports.
If a biathlete or speed skater from Russia or some other east european country is not allowed to take part in a comepetition it is clear that he/she must have used doping whilst if the same happens to german athletes german media always blame wrong results or the adaptation to the location. :p
