Finally Tested

The dynamic duo of Greek sprinting, Kostas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou, were finally given a drugs test last weekend.

The tests were a surprise, so that our two "heroes" did not have time to run off and fake another accident.

The were done at a Greek national team training facility near Athens. The results are not known.

The tests come less than two weeks before track and field's governing body is expected to decide whether Kenteris and Thanou should be suspended.

WADA chief Dick Pound said, in Athens on Monday, that he expected the two athletes would be found guilty by the IAAF.

"These people were avoiding tests and that's the same as a positive test...My prediction is that they are going to find that there was a doping violation and that there will be sanctions against the athletes and, I hope, against the coach."
