Paralympics Athletes Suffer From Gambling and Doping Problems
Mar 20, 2012
One well-known Canadian athlete, Jim Armstrong, has been banned from the Canadian Curling Association and World Curling Federation after doping allegations.
The man has represented Canada back in 1980’s as a member a curling team. And curling is a sport that makes many Canadians (as well as Scots) go wild. Unfortunately, later on, Armstrong suffered from a car accident, an incident that has confined him to a wheelchair. That, however, with the help of Tamoxifen pills and Viagra, made the man go.
As sources at casino gambling news indicate, the Canadian athlete recovered and started playing on the Canadian Paralympic curling team where he skipped. And he did it all the way to glory. A gold Paralympics medal in 2010.
All seemed to go well now, however, the Canadian law enforcement, no matter how appreciative of gold medalists, has charged the man and his son for selling counterfeit Viagra pills. To add to the insult, the gold medalist has been caught using Tamoxifen pills, which he claimed were his wife’s and he plainly mixed them up with his. Unfortunately, the curling federation already knows that Tamofixen counters the effects of steroid abuse, and declined to believe in Armstrong story, banning him from the sport.
Many Paralympics athletes, as rumored, pursue the life of gambling, drinking, whoring, and drug abuse after the the initial victory euphoria wears off. A couple have been caught nearly dead drunk on their wheelchairs with poker and blackjack cards after a night at a casino.
Others made winning at blackjack a new pursuit after athletic success. Notwithstanding their previous history of success, not every one was able to win real money at casino, while many have fallen lower than the depths of the Death Valley.
