Jodie Marsh is a female bodybuilder from the UK. She also does television work, a recent broadcast being “Jodie On… Steroids.” It’s important to point out that Jodie is a rare bird in the world of bodybuilding: she is a natural bodybuilder. That means no PEDs. No steroids.
She suffers in competitions for this because most competitors use steroids. She often places in the top five, but insiders tell her she will never win world class events unless she starts doping.
Jodie decided to do an investigation into the world of steroids, the result being the above-mentioned “Jodie On… Steroids.” This documentary originally aired on Britain’s TLC and is now available at YouTube.
So why am I mentioning this here? Because Jodie traveled to Florida and interviewed a man, Richard Thomas, who was busted in 2009 for selling steroids, spent time in prison for it, and told police he was the “biggest steroid dealer in central Florida.” And he says he sold steroids to golf stars. (Can you think of a golf star who lived in central Florida circa 2009?)
Here’s a quote and a link to the clip (in Part 2 of the documentary) on YouTube. (For some reason, my link to the exact spot won’t work, so you might want to skip ahead to the 4:10 mark.)
“I sold to football stars, I sold to baseball stars, I sold to basketball stars, I sold to golf stars. I sold to… big peop… big name people.”
When is Tim Finchem finally going to be honest with the public and admit the PGA Tour has some “stars” with a steroid problem?
