Operation Aderlass, Operacion Puerto approach closure with two different outcomes



Two different major doping investigations more than a decade apart come to a close this month with two polar opposite outcomes. In the recent Operation Aderlass and the 2006 Operacion Puerto, life-saving transfusion technology was corrupted for sporting fraud by doping doctors but only one is facing serious punishment.

In Munich, Germany a public prosecutor’s office is demanding a prison sentence of five years and six months and a five-year professional ban for Mark Schmidt, the doctor behind a large scale blood doping operation in Austria and Germany, involving nordic skies and a number of professional cyclists.
