The investigation into the activities of Italian Sports Doctor Professor Francesco Conconi has once again brought the name of Stephen Roche to the forefront. Reports in today's Sunday Times allege that files seized by the police indicate that Roche did indeed use the performance enhancing drug erythropoietin (EPO). The files, seized from Conconi's headquarters at the University of Ferrara, contain a list of 23 names that includes that of Roche, and are central in the investigation into blood doping in sport currently underway in Italy. Roche again denied using the drug yesterday, saying, "I can't understand why this is in the files. I would love to be able to get Conconi to stand up and say that I took EPO because I know I didn't."
