Dimitrij Ovtcharov has been suspended by the DTTB for allegedly doping. He supposedly tested positive for the banned weight loss drug Clenbuterol.

That probably means the end of the Ovtcharov blade...

Sure. Since they could never prove he tuned his racket, they wanted to take him down another way.
--or--
Adham's boss Ebi wanted him off the German National Team so there would be a spot for Baum.

No, how can we blame Adham Sharara, especially now.

Of course, the possible doping of Ovtcharov clearly proves, that Adham Sharara has absolutely nothing to do with passing illegal regulations and misleading the public by his statements.

Back to a more serious tone here, according to Dima, he is innocent :o Guess he is the first caught "cheater" who claims this ;)

Still, he might be right! What, have I turned around when it comes to cheating? Certainly not, but I've found out that Clenbuterol is often given to cows (beats me why some one wants them to lose weight) and if he have eaten meat from a cow that's been given Clenbuterol, it could show up on a test. Supposedly, 800 people in Spain had to visit the hospital after eating meat that contained Clenbuterol. Also, one of the side effect with Clenbuterol is shaky hands and this seems to me as the last thinh a TT player would want.

So, is he innocent? I haven't got a clue, but there is at least reasons to doubt his guilt in this.

Yes this situation does seem completly advoidable, "Oh Im one of the best Table Tennis players in the World, Im in the 2nd best team in the World, I am surrounded by top coaches, trainers, players, recieve great sponsorship, have the most interesting serves in Mens TT, Im a National hero but I just feel I need to loose 2kg so I won't talk to the trainers Ill use ... lol . Arn't people funny

These accusations seem like they may be in error. But then again, he does have that odd service toss. Hmm..

A weight loss drug is not likely to give him an advantage in TT, so it sounds like it's probably not intentional...

Mind you I never guess if someone is guilty or not, I would find it strange for a top player or any player to use such a drug, but stranger things have happened. I hope he is proven not guilty for his sake and the sport in general
