    JVDB, according to the other place.

    edit: and if so, I'd imagine the other 18 will be people moving in similar circles. Including a few skaters, no doubt.

    Quackery, yes. But counts as blood manipulation from what I remember of the bruhaha around Kittel doing similar.

    Was due to when the rules came into force iirc, so not illegal at the time Kittel was sent to whoever it was. Not certain, but I've seen reference to Mertens dong this stuff up to 2013, so falls foul of the rules.
