Science is crazy!

The International Olympic Committee announced on Friday that 23 athletes from six different countries have tested positive for blood doping, and that a disciplinary commission has been called to review and hand out penalties.

Sounds pretty straightforward, no? Well… until you learn that these 23 athletes' positive tests came from blood they sampled four years ago at the 2012 London Olympics!!

The IOC keeps athletes' blood and urine samples on file for ten years after each Games specifically so that they can be reanalyzed later on as drug testing becomes more advanced.

And, yes, positive tests — even a decade after the initial sample was given — can lead to sanctions, disqualifications, loss of medals, and banishment from future games!

In these nearly-two dozen athletes' cases, the punishment is only just beginning, according to IOC Prez Thomas Bach, who released a statement about the positive tests (below):

Shaun White Sued For Sexual Harassment By His Own Bandmate!

The flying tomato is about to get squashed…

Shaun White is easily the most famous athlete in the world of snowboarding, but you may be surprised to learn that he's also a semi-accomplished musician.

However, that may be over now because his own drummer is currently suing him for sexual harassment!

Lena Zawaideh formed the band Bad Things with Shaun back in 2008, but has now filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic gold medalist for $42,000 in back payments.

However, the real uphill legal battle for Shaun is that she's also suing for punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" both in-person and over text!

Apparently, Shaun has a history of using his fame to steamroll his band mates — he even forced them to "tour" with him when he was training for the 2014 Olympics to suit his own travel needs — and altogether stopped paying Lena her $3,750 per month stipend once he felt she reached her worth!

Ugh! If these accusations are true, that's a half-pipe too far for us!

Even though Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete in the history of the games, it doesn't mean he's perfect.

Well after getting his mind right, the gold medal athlete decided to turn things around and announce that he would be coming out of retirement and competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio this year!

When it comes to fighting for equal pay, the U.S. women's soccer team isn't playing around!

Last month, five players from the Women's National Team filed a wage-discrimination complaint against U.S. Soccer because they are paid less than half as much as players on the men's team!

On behalf of the entire women's team, co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, and Megan Rapinoe filed paperwork in hopes of achieving wage equality.

And it looks like the athletes are sticking to their guns. If nothing changes in the federation, the team might use their most powerful bargaining tool in protest of wage discrimination — and not show up to August's Olympics!

In an interview with ESPNW, Sauerbrunn revealed a boycott would "still be on the table" if no progress was made by July, explaining:
