- After the recent doping revelations which have rocked athletics, Germany's Olympic discus champion Robert Harting has made his blood-test results public to remove any doubt about his performances. "When it's clear how we work, and things are known right down to our core, then it's out of the question that anything would show up," Harting told German broadcaster ARD, having given his permission to release the data. Alongside Harting, Germany's 800m runner Robin Schembera and race-walker Andre Hoehne have also made the results of their tests public. The trio have taken the step in a bid to be transparent and their blood readings have been released from the IAAF's databank.
