This.

I've heard experts interviewed that claim exactly this - and claim it lasts more than 4 years due to enhanced muscle memory. They were discussing a study of benefits that last into old age rather than competitive events though.

AAI run the national marathon. They made the mistake, not DCM.

Most likely a permanent effect of testosterone doping.


If you look at the list of track & field athletes given sanctions based on biological passports, the vast majority are long distance or marathon runners.

Seems it not just DCM that invites past doers..

Mathew Kisorio, won Beijing marathon in 2:07:06.

He was busted back in 2012 when he tested positive for steroids and admitted the use of them.
