In the wake of recent sprinting doping scandals, it seems appropriate to revisit this classic 2008 interview with doping kingpin ‘Memo’ Heredia‏, currently working in the sport of boxing

Heredia now claims to be reformed and works as strength and conditioning coach for many top boxers, including pound for pound elite and Pacquiao conquerer Juan Manuel Marquez…yet has displayed a reluctance to allow his clients to undergo the most stringent random blood and urine drug testing — none have as of yet despite him being active in the sport for a couple of years

“Track and field, swimming, cross-country skiing and cycling can no longer be saved.

Golf? Not clean either.

Soccer? Soccer players come to me and say they have to be able to run up and down the touchline without becoming tired, and they have to play every three days.

Basketball players take fat burners – amphetamines, ephedrin.

Baseball? Haha. Steroids in pre-season, amphetamines during the games.

Even archers take downers so that their arm remains steady.

Everyone dopes.”
