Actually if you read the article again, it says Norway (and others) COULD be stripped of its medal but are undergoing second testing to make sure of details. Remember what happened to Ludger Beerbaum at the last olympics. He was found guilty for some substance but it turned out that it was in a topical ointment for a skin irritation that gives no advantage in competition. I haven't heard of using capsaicin to make their legs more sensitive but it's actually fairly common in several liniments/anti-inflammatory products. In fact, i've used Equi-Block on some of my horses after they've worked hard at a show. Equi-Block's description is "It is a unique menthol/capsaicin "feel good rub" indicated for the relief of minor aches and pains. It penetrates deep to soothe joints, tighten ligaments and tendons, and help reduce swelling.". So we don't know exactly why the capsaicin is in their system yet. What's stupid is that by that this level they should know what's allowed and what's not! And if they WERE using it for soring, are they stupid enough to think their horses wouldn't be tested!?
