Link Friday - and maybe Ben Johnson wasn't the only one

The links for this week are:

  • USA's Masters road to Vancouver started in White Mountain and Jim Parinella gives us a review of their first tournament. This might be one of the roads will get some writing on (hint advertisement for documentation from other teams).
  • A new initiative to put online Ultimate courses has been made. Check out the new web site - Open Ultimate.
  • I found this article fascinating on how athletes have avoided drug test fails for band substances. I know this shouldn't be an issue in Ultimate (though I'm sure there are a few), but once the money comes into our sport ;) then we can expect the same problems. One of the most interesting parts of the article is where they talk about using insulin to help the cells absorb energy after exercising. I'm a diabetic, so I've wondered if I should inject and eat right after playing. Is that illegal?
