Nandrolone & Steroids in Sports

What exactly is Nandrolone? ‘Though the results of the B sample have yet to be confirmed, Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif testing positive for Nandrolone is just another peek at the dirty subterranean world of professional sport. With cricket only recently getting tough on drugs, you can rest assured that they won’t be the last big names to be hauled up. What, though, is Nandrolone, and why have so many elite athletes tested positive for it in recent years? According to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) system of nomenclature, the anabolic steroid has the name 17b-hydroxy-19-nor-4-andro-sten-3-one, and can occur naturally in the body, albeit in minute quantities. Structurally, it’s very similar to Testosterone, the male hormone that was recently the buzz word in sports bulletins after Floyd Landis, the Tour de France winner, tested positive for excessive levels.’

Nandrolone. ‘Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid that has recently caused a great deal of controversy after a number of big name athletes have been banned from competition after failing tests for this drug.’

Nandrolone Drug Information. ‘This medicine belongs to the group of medicines known as anabolic (an-a-BOL-ik) steroids. They are related to testosterone, a male sex hormone. Anabolic steroids help to rebuild tissues that have become weak because of serious injury or illness. A diet high in proteins and calories is necessary with anabolic steroid treatment.’

ESPN Special – Anabolic steroids. ‘There should not be a controversy over anabolic steroid use in athletics — non-medical use of anabolic steroids is illegal and banned by most, if not all, major sports organizations. Still, some athletes persist in taking them, believing that these substances provide a competitive advantage. But beyond the issues of popularity or legality is the fact that anabolic steroids can cause serious physical and psychological side effects.’


  1. Steroids are ruining the sports that I love. I’ve been a long time sports handicapper and most of all a devout fan.

    The brass really need to start cracking down.
