Prior to the Olympic competition, several prominent athletes were ruled out of the competition due to failed tests. World indoor medallists Dimitrios Chondrokoukis , Debbie Dunn , and Mariem Alaoui Selsouli were withdrawn from their Olympic teams in July for doping, as was 2004 Olympic medallist Zoltán Kővágó .    At the Olympic competition, Tameka Williams admitted to taking a banned stimulant and was removed from the games.  Ivan Tsikhan did not compete in the hammer throw as a re-test of his sample from the 2004 Athens Olympics , where he won silver, was positive.  Hassan Hirt ,  Amine Laâlou ,  Marina Marghieva ,  Diego Palomeque ,  and defending 50 km walk champion Alex Schwazer were also suspended before taking part in their events. 
In males with delayed puberty: Various dosage regimens have been used; some call for lower dosages initially with gradual increases as puberty progresses, with or without a decrease to maintenance levels. Other regimens call for higher dosage to induce pubertal changes and lower dosage for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose. Dosage is within the range of 50 to 200 mg every 2 to 4 weeks for a limited duration, for example, 4 to 6 months. X-rays should be taken at appropriate intervals to determine the amount of bone maturation and skeletal development (see INDICATIONS AND USAGE and WARNINGS ).
The second main ingredient in Super Rhanderol is diosgenin, more commonly known as wild yam extract. Diosgenin is a type of steroidal saponin. These compounds serve as a starting point for the semisynthesis of certain steroid hormones. Studies specific to saponins and their effects on ecdysteroids show that the saponins enhance membrane permeation of cells to allow for an increase in the effectiveness of the ecdysteroids. Diosgenin has been included in Super Rhanderol in order to enhance the effects of the Rhaponticum.
