Valentijn Overeem unaware of brothers TRT needs

Quote:
By Lewis Mckeever:
Alistair’s brother and fellow MMA fighter, Valentijn Overeem, is bewildered by The Reem’s elevated levels of testosterone. With the recent gossip of Alistair obtaining a TRT exemption from the docs, in an effort to justify his sea biscuit heights of testosterone, brother Valentijn is oblivious to any medical condition his brother may suffer from:

“Because I know him so well that I think I should be aware of something like that,” Valentijn Overeem today told MMAjunkie.com. “If that was the case, I think I would know. I would be surprised.”

The former Strikeforce fighter then proceeds to declare that his brother is already likely to have higher natural levels of testosterone:

“There are different reasons why someone could have high testosterone,” Valentijn Overeem said. “Taking steroids is one of them. Some people have natural testosterone at a high level anyway. I’m not saying my brother is one of those people, but there’s more possibilities. If the [athletic commission] tests the sample again, just to make sure there were no mistakes, I think that would be a good start.”

Valentijn seems convinced that his brother’s random test came back with unreliable data and that another examination would rectify those mistakes:

“There are certain rules, and athletes have to abide by the rules,” Valentijn Overeem said. “If there would be a second opinion or a second test, I’m sure that would change the result. The bottom line is, I think everybody just wants to know the truth. So by being transparent and double checking it, that won’t harm anyone.”

“You’re innocent until proven guilty, and I think that’s the way it should be,” he said. “Look at Lance Armstrong; they’ve been talking about him taking stuff forever. Because you’re a very good athlete and winning a lot of events doesn’t necessarily mean that (you take performance-enhancing drugs). That just means that you’re very dedicated and talented. I think that’s the case with Alistair.

“There are always going to be people that say, ‘I knew this. I knew that.’ But then again, let [the commission] do whatever they have to do, and we’ll see the result in the end when things are final. I think it’s a bit early to jump to conclusions.”

The very notion of Overeem wriggling his way free of a failed drug test reporting a 14:1 testosterone ratio seems absurd, but given the fact that Dana White has shut down the rally for Mark Hunt and signalled the green light for the Mir/Velasquez bout, it appears as though the bosses behind the scenes know something we don’t. What possible trick could The Reem have hidden up his sleeve, if not for TRT exemption? Next Tuesday’s NSAC commission hearing couldn’t be further away.

A bit off topic but... didn't they recently find out that Armstrong used EPO during the Tour de France in '99?

Well, I guess he was always good at cycling.





Ba-dum-tss.

Yes. That doesn't explain why they found synthetic EPO in his blood though.

rumour is that armstrong failed a drug test during the tour of sweden but all record of the test dissapeared

he also has the lance armstrong foundation that does research on methods of boosting red bloodcell counts to help chemo patients ,which is exactly what EPO does .
