Five athletes tested positive for the stimulant bromantan and were disqualified by the IOC, but later reinstated after an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport: swimmers Andrey Korneyev and Nina Zhivanevskaya , Greco-Roman wrestler Zafar Guliyev and sprinter Marina Trandenkova , all from Russia, and the Lithuanian track cyclist Rita Razmaitė . Dr. Vitaly Slionssarenko, physician to the Lithuanian cycling team and team coach Boris Vasilyev were expelled from the games.    The CAS overturned the IOC decision, because bromantan had only recently been added to the prohibited list,  and the athletes and officials were reprimanded.    The Russians had argued that bromantans wasn't a stimulant and thus not banned.  
Oral and injectable steroids both have their benefits. Primarily, oral steroids offer huge gains in short periods, and injectable steroids offer smaller, higher quality gains over longer periods of time. Most of the bodybuilders and athletes who utilize anabolic steroids will actually use both during a cycle. They will start out with one of the oral steroids as a “kick-start” for their gains, then switch over to an injectable before the side effects become too much to handle. This way, they can enjoy quick gains from the start, then turn them into lean muscle without much water retention throughout the rest of the cycle.
The side effects of Dianabol vary greatly depending on your individual tolerance, your dosage, and your stack choices. For the most part, though, healthy and fit men tend to tolerate Dbol quite well. The two most common Dianabol side effects for men come from its high estrogen conversion rate. Almost all users experience some bloating and discomfort, and some men develop gynecomastia, or female breast tissue. To avoid these, be certain to incorporate an aromatase inhibitor into your Dianabol cycle. What’s more, bloating increases blood pressure due to the extra fluid in the body. To combat this, you can find many diuretics over the counter.
