Incredible Video Shows Nordic Skier Max Hauke Caught Doping
Nordic Skier Max Hauke was incredibly caught red handed doping as police took at raids at several locations as 10 people were arrested.
Doping has been a problem in certain sports over the years with cycling the most high profile and frequent offender of the issue, especially with Lance Armstrong's discretions at the Tour de France.
Armstrong was finally brought to task after years of denying that he'd ever doped by investigative journalism after there were always rumours that the American wasn't as clean as he always claimed.
One thing that never happened to the seven time Tour de France winner, until they were taken off him, was actually be caught doping, because you'd have to be a massive dope for that to happen.
However that is exactly what happened to Nordic Skier Max Hauke during the Nordic World Cup Ski Championships when he was recorded in the middle of a blood transfusion when police raided his room as part of a large investigation.
The moment was incredibly recorded and posted by Norwegian site NRK Sport:

He takes a drug which enhances red blood cell count, removes the blood, then after dope tests transfuses the doped blood. He was caught mid transfusion pic.twitter.com/s8n9Oy9WBp

Absolutely surreal situation and equally priceless facial expression from the Austrian skier Max Hauke as he's being caught red-handed by the police in the very middle of a blood transfusion: https://t.co/wwPT8ysqTG (ht @JakobsenSanne)- Mikkel Condé v2.0 (@mrconde) February 28, 2019
NRK spoke to Hauke's training partner, British skier Andrew Young, about the incident with Young saying, "I am getting nauseous. It is disgusting to look at. It's not nice. It is difficult. There is no room for it in sports and I do not realize that he was doing it. It is difficult to describe what you feel after seeing a friend or a friend cheating."
The raids were taken out by Austrian police on a 'Germany-based criminal organisation' who have been linked with doping for a number of years.
Sports doctor Mark Schmidt is said to have been arrested in Germany on Wednesday and he worked with Gerolsteiner cycling team around 2008 when Bernhard Kohl was banned from the Tour de France because of doping.
Never before has a cheat been so red handed, and we're all for it!
