The avatar is in good humor. As far as trying to make myself look cooler, I don't think so. He's already proven he'll go the distance, so I don't think my accusations are out of realm.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - A Russian armwrestler was disqualified for cheating at a European competition after attempting to move to a lower weight class by sending a lookalike to the weigh-in, officials said Thursday.
Arsen Liliev tried to enter the 154-pound weight class at the European championships being held in Lycksele, northern Sweden, but weighed 4.4 pounds too much, said Andreas Johansson, chairman of the Swedish Armsport Association.
Liliev decided to try again, but this time he sent a "lookalike" to replace him at the weigh-in, Johansson said. The impostor, who was also Russian, passed the weight control, but officials discovered the fraud before the competition started, he said.
"They resemble each other but it didn't work," Johansson said. "Arsen Liliev is disqualified from the competition while the other competitor received a warning."
The European championships end Sunday.
Yeah, they're a tight team alright.
even this post shows that it is not about being anti doping but about Arsen beating Travis last weekend.it started with steroid use then no proof could be provided,but then other positive tested athletes were tried to be used as a proof,nope didnt work,now something totally different is being used to attack Liliev and i realise that it had nothing to do with being anti doping but something about the last saturday.
what is next? Arsen stole an apple from the neigbour's tree when he was 5 years old?
