Johann Mühlegg

Johann Mühlegg is a former top level cross-country skier who competed in international competitions first representing Germany and Spain, after becoming a Spanish citizen in 1999. He was disqualified from the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City for doping. Mühlegg participated for Germany in the 1992, 1994 and 1998 Winter Olympics though he began having trouble with Germany's ski federation in 1993. From the beginning, Mühlegg singled himself out, at one point accusing German head coach Georg Zipfel for "damaging him spiritually", he was reinstated later. But from that moment on, the eccentric Mühlegg insisted on taking a flask of holy water with him at all times, trusting only his Portuguese cleaning woman/chaperone Justina Agostino. In the end, Mühlegg was thrown out. After being ejected from the national team after the 1998 Nagano Games, his good relations with members of the Spanish cross-country skiing team, in particular Juan Jesús Gutiérrez Cuevas and Haritz Zunzunegui, opened the door for Mühlegg to obtain Spanish citizenship.

In late 1999, competing for Spain, he won a World Cup race for the first time. At the 2001 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti, he won two medals with a silver in the 10 km + 10 km combined pursuit, a gold in the 50 km freestyle race; these are the only medals that Spain has won at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. In the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Mühlegg won gold medals in the 30 km freestyle and the 10 km + 10 km pursuit races, the successes gaining him congratulations from King Juan Carlos I of Spain. Mühlegg finished first in the 50 km classical race held on the final Saturday of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games on 23 February 2002 but was disqualified from that race and was expelled from the Games the next day, after testing positive for darbepoetin¹. Following the darbepoetin scandal, the International Olympic Committee let Mühlegg keep his gold medals from the first two races, but in December 2003 a ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport found that these medals should be withdrawn.

The CAS remitted this case as well as similar ones involving Olga Danilova and Larisa Lazutina to the IOC Executive Board, which confirmed the rulings in February 2004. All results are sourced from the International Ski Federation. 7 victories 12 podiums Cross-country skiing at the 2002 Winter Olympics List of sportspeople sanctioned for doping offences Traces of darbepoetin were found in a random urine test on 21 February. Before the 50 km race on 23 February, a random test for hemoglobin levels found Mühlegg above the limit. At the end of the race he came on strong to beat Mikhail Ivanov of Russia by 14.9 seconds.

Sarmin chemical attack

The Sarmin chemical attack was a chlorine attack that took place on 16 March 2015, in the village of Sarmin in the Idlib Governorate of Syria. On 6 March 2015, the United Nations Security Council adopted resolution Resolution 2209, which condemns the use of chlorine as a weapon, threatened to use force if it was used again. At the time of the attack the town was under the control of Ahrar al-Sham; the village was struck by a chemical attack around 22:30 to 23:00 when two "barrel bombs" were dropped by helicopters on the village. One fell on an open field, while the other "fell through the ventilation shaft" of a built house, killing a family of six living in the basement of the house and injuring "dozens more"; the Syrian military has denied the claim. A year-long United Nations and OPCW inquiry found there was sufficient information to conclude that the Syrian Arab Air Force had used "makeshift weapons deployed from helicopters" that contained chlorine on the town of Talmenes in April 2014 and the town of Sarmin in March 2015.

A family of six, including three children under the age of three and their grandmother, died. A doctor in Sarmin said the manner of death indicated a gas chlorine. Use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war
