South Africa Athletics hit even more rock-bottom
  • September 17th, 2010

South Africa Athletics, currently at its lowest with the on-going worldwide focus on Caster Semenya gender issue, now has been hit by another scandal.

Former South African women sprinter, Geraldine Pillay admitted on live radio that she was administered blood-boosting drug without her knowledge.

Geraldine Pillay was Commonwealth Games 100m silver, and 200m bronze medallist back in 2006.

She alleged said that the team doctor, Maaki Ramagole, injected her with the banned drug Actovegin between April and May 2008, after orders from athletics former head coach of Athletics South Africa, Ekkart Arbeit.

Arbeit himself has admitted he was part of the state-sponsored drug use during the golden-era of the former East German athletics team back in the 1970s and 1980s.

Pillay thought it was a vitamin cocktail, and is now considering legal action next.
