New Zealand All Blacks Superstar Dan Carter Steroid Exposure // No One Expected This
Global rugby superstar and Rugby World Cup winner, Dan Carter, has tested for steroids we can reveal. This has shaken the rugby community.
Dan is adulated the world over for his flawless talent and humble personality.
However, it doesn’t just stop there. Joe Rokocoko who is a fellow Kiwi, along with Argentina international Juan Imhoff have also tested positive for steroids found in urine samples by France’s Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) after a crackdown on performance enhancing drugs used in Sport over in France where these three currently play rugby.
Neither Carter, Rokocoko or Imhoff had therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) in place at the time as found with Sir Bradley Wiggins and tests reportedly showed that all three had traces of corticosteroids in their systems.
What are corticosteroids?
While Corticosteroids are not to be confused with anabolic steroids which increase muscle size and strength, they are synthetic hormones used to help with inflammation and asthmatic conditions.
They can be administered orally, by injection or even by an inhaler or cream. Arguably they can give a sports player an edge over the opposition.
The main concern appears to be over the apparent lack of exception granted. This certainly goes against the ethics in rugby.
How this may affect their future’s is unknown, but it could shake up the whole system in France.
