[ Editor's Note: Chryste Gaines, MBA, Olympic gold and bronze medal sprinter and former teammate of Marion Jones in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, stated the following in a Dec. 22, 2008 email to in response to the IOC ruling:
"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
Since the dismantle of the original BD there have been a host of labs claiming to be the new supplier of British Dragon steroids; more than we can list and more than you want to read. However, there is one manufacturer that is worth mentioning. There is a new lab that possesses the name and claims to be the old BD but in a new restructured manner. Their new line carries with it more credibility than all the other supposed BD suppliers and time will tell if their products are worth anything or not but the original line this is not. This New BD uses a different label, different logo and is for all intense purposes not similar in any way to the old British Dragon steroids manufactured a few years ago.
