Italian Distance Runner Tries to Cheat Drug Test by Using Fake Penis to Provide Urine Sample

Say, did you hear the one about the guy who used a fake penis to beat a drug test?

No, it’s not a joke. It’s a real news item. It seems that an Italian distance runner named Devis Licciardi, who runs for the Italian Air Force Team, tried to beat a drug test administered by the Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata after a 10,000-meter road race this past weekend by using a FAKE PENIS filled with clean urine. Now he is facing a disciplinary hearing before the Italian Olympic Committee in Rome.

Sadly, there are a lot of details we just don’t know about this amazing story. First and foremost, for example, we do not know how the fake penis was discovered. I mean, did it not match his skin tone? Did they perform a surprise penis inspection as well? Did it malfunction and explode? We just don’t know.

Regardless, the fact that he used a fake penis to cheat a drug test is probably not the most embarrassing aspect of this story for poor Licciardi. No, the most embarrassing part is that, despite the PEDs that were presumably in his system, the dude still finished dead last in the race.

Oh, and if you’d like to know more about the use of fake penises to cheat drugs tests…well, here you go:
