German Doctor Jailed

A Munich court on Friday sentenced a German sports doctor to four years and 10 months in prison for masterminding an international network helping athletes with blood doping for years. The case arose from "Operation Bloodletting" under which police raided the Nordic Ski World Championships in February 109 and arrested athletes hours before an even. The defendant, identified only as Marks S, was found guilty on two dozen charges linked to helping at least 23 athletes from eight countries gain an unfair advantage via performance-enhancing blood transfusions. He was the first active physician in German to receive jail sentence for doping.
