nosis in an effort to excuse the doping offense, the medical board charged.
White was stripped of her gold medals from the 2003 World meet and suspended for two years.
It was she who had provided information to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on her former coach Remi Korchemny and Conte.
In the mid 1990s, Victor Conte developed a legal dietary supplement that purported to build muscle and speed recovery, much like an anabolic steroid.
Conte called the product ZMA, and to promote it he recruited a stable of world-class athletes who attested to the supplement's powers to 'make you 21/2 times the man you are!' Among the stars he attracted were Tim Montgomery, the world's fastest human, members of the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco Giants superstar Barry Bonds, who took three ZMA capsules before bedtime as part of an extensive nutrition program designed by Conte.
Conte, an amateur scientist who never finished college, made millions as he transformed his tiny company, the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), into a significant player in the $19 billion nutritional supplement industry. But everything came crashing with the Paris scam.
Also to be disgraced as the scandal assumed ever new dimensions was Montgomery, a 2000 Olympic gold medalist and a former 100-meter world record holder. He retired in 2005 after he was banned from track and field for two years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for doping linked to the investigation of BALCO.
Considered the fastest man on Earth until his world record was erased in the wake of the steroid scandal, Montgomery was indicted in April 2006 and arrested on fraud charges for his alleged involvement in a money laundering scheme. He is accused of depositing three bogus checks totaling 775,000 dollars.
Montgomery pleaded guilty to the charges on April 9, 2007. He is due to be sentenced in November, and is expected to serve up to 46 months Page: 1 2 3 Related medicine news :1
