As if things couldn’t get any worse for the giant from Seattle:
Novitzky said 30 athletes were called to testify before the grand jury in 2003. Novitzky didn’t identify any of the athletes, but testified there was “some evidence” that professional wrestler Bob Sapp — who briefly played in the NFL — bought steroids from Arnold.
Novitzky is expected to finish testifying on Tuesday and prosecutors plan to next call sports doping expert Don Catlin to the witness stand.
Catlin has developed numerous tests to detect performance-enhancing drugs and helped expose hundreds of cheating athletes. He discovered both of Arnold’s previously undetectable steroids — THG and norbolethone — that are at the heart of the BALCO investigation.
Thankfully, the Arnold in question is not me or a family member. (That would be a hell of a story, though.) Here’s the last image most American fight fans saw of Bob Sapp:
Been a hell of a few years for both Sapp and Michael Connette.
