SUSPICION REGARDING BOCK: Also in Melbourne, Carly Crawford reported Australian Football League Gold Coast player Nathan Bock "is embroiled in the drugs-in-sport investigation because of concerns he may have been given banned peptides." Bock was allegedly given a substance described to him as an amino acid that was cleared for athletes to use. Bock is the Australian Football League player being investigated by the AFL and the ASADA (HERALD SUN, 5/13).

With the ASADA under pressure to demonstrate the results of its investigation into "the major football codes, the ACC has been building a broader network of police and government officials behind the scenes to help safeguard the integrity of the sport" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 5/13).
