German biathlon gold winner Magdalena Neuner criticizes drug testing officials

by

Double gold winner in biathlon, Magdalena Neuner, has come out with heavy criticism of Olympics drug testing officials. “They treat us like pigs!” she exclaimed, referring to the team who take athletes through doping tests immediately after each event. “After the finish they treat us worse than pigs going to the slaughterhouse. You really get shoved around and force is used.” Neuner, who has just withdrawn from the competition to allow others a chance to medal, explained that sometimes up to five “screaming people are hounding you,” making it difficult to enjoy the moment in which an athlete has just won a medal.
