press release from the Norwegian ski federation about hormonbehandlingen of 17-year-old Helene Marie Fossesholm to help her to be a few centimeters longer, is a type of novelty that had to come. The combination of her rare skitalent, the use of a drug from the forbudslista to the World's Antidopingbyrå (WADA) and the debut in the junior world CHAMPIONSHIP about a week, so indicate.
But no need to disclose the press release with the cynicism that the Swedish storavisa Expressen do in the day when they from the front of his website has the title "Supertalangen has been dopingklassat preparation. Norwegian skidförbundets prompted nya Björgen".
unfortunately, It is so ugly journalism that this must be the Swedish.the UGLY APPROACH: Swedish Expressen leaves no doubt that this is even a Norwegian dopingsak. FACSIMILE Expressen. Show more
FOR instead to explain a young girl's natural hope to reach a certain height in a normal humane way, Expressen chosen to explain the matter in the light of the general Swedish mistrust to the Norwegian cross-country skiing.
It is the same mistrust this newspaper has been building up over the past couple of years through the coverage of the talked about Marit Bjørgens strength, the dopingrelaterte cases against Martin Johnsrud sundby's time and Therese Johaug, as well as the discussion about astmamedisineringen on the Norwegian skilandslagene.
the Newspaper has not been alone in these aspects of this issue, and whether the purpose has been to create distrust; this form of journalism certainly worked:At one time believed over 40 percent of the swedes, the Norwegian cross-country was based on organized doping.
It is an astonishing result on how it is possible to build suspicion between the two otherwise very similar sportskulturer.
But it leads not to something good.Confirms hormone therapy to drop dopingmistanker
IT tells the current news headlines all about. Expressens titling is totally out of proportion. Anyone who reads the case and puts itself into the fact, will immediately see that this teen is not received hormone therapy because she is a supertalent on the ski. Just because she wants to be a few centimeters higher.
see also Expressens sportsreportere and desksjefer, but they are tempted by the possibility to blow up the readership. It is a temptation we are to-day sitting close by the internet's many highly-tuned telleapparater, know all about.
But the insight is no good reason to forgive us. For Expressen know what they are doing when they, in the interview with the doctor on the Swedish juniorlandslaget equip the text with so many dots for the answers that hjemmepublikummet can fill out the rest for yourself:
- I have no details, but my comment is that we in Sweden are working with the very healthy individuals, " explains dr. Åsa Thelaus the case before the Expressen allows her to add:
We relate to the rules that exist. About WADA approves an exemption as.....it is clear there will be discussion when it comes to just growth hormones.
SO can the swedes even ask about what has happened in the sport of their the last few decades when the best drug is Norwegian skiløperes real or oppkonstruerte accidents. This is despite all the talk about a major power in the sport with traditions in most verdensidretter which is even prouder than our. How can such a idrettsnasjon be so keen to talk down the Norwegian sport of skiing?
It was just that the seasoned broadcaster James Rough in Sweden's Television (SVT) took up over two years ago when the criticism against the Norwegian cross country skiing was like røffest in Sweden. Rough asked about how all this Norway-the hatred came from, and even answered ironically:
It may well not be the Norwegian success that provoke beyond all reason, he wrote and warned of the consequences of this folly:
- it Is Norway that is the greatest danger for skiing future? Is the Norway we will focus on in the pursuit of the most devious; those who threaten this sport idea, and the whole of existence.
RIGHT before the World's Antidopingbyrå (WADA) to decide whether Russia again must be banned, warning new urgency. Where it is all the more reason to discuss the use of the medical exemption from dopingbestemmelsene (TUE) in several western countries, it is not so difficult to understand what it really is to talk about in this case.
Or as Per Medbøe Thorsby; the leader in anti-doping Norway's medical academic committee, said:
I am unable with my experience and expertise to see that this will have any sporting effect. It makes no sporting seneffekter to treat children in normalsonen for height, " explains Thorsby, in job at Ullevål Hospital to the daily is a specialist in just such hormone therapy.
IT that give the seneffekter is so sportsjournalistikk.
It weakens the real fight against doping, and makes both the swedes and us, colder and dumber.Swedish self-criticism: Where does this Norway-the hatred from?
