Growth spurts

I was very interested to see that the NBA will start testing players for human growth hormone (HGH) next season.

What’s known as the anti-ageing drug (the likes of which most probably keep Hollywood stars and celebrities looking youthful) has a host of benefits for athletes, especially for training and recovery. Easy to get too, as there a host of vanity products (hair restorers, anti-ageing products, etc) that include HGH.

HGH use might explain why triathletes in their mid-to-late 40s win so many amateur races. Vanity strikes again.
