The Australian Crime Commission (ACC) said scientists, coaches and support staff were involved in the provision of drugs across multiple sporting codes.
In some cases, the drugs were supplied by organised crime syndicates, it said.
Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare said the findings were “shocking and will disgust Australian sports fans”.
“Multiple athletes from a number of clubs in major Australian sporting codes are suspected of currently using or having previously used peptides, potentially constituting anti-doping rule violations,” Mr Clare said.
“It’s cheating but it’s worse than that, it’s cheating with the help of criminals.”
High profile sports people are all lining up to say they’ve never seen any of this doping.
Who to believe?
Certainly Canberra’s Lauren Jackson with her seemingly interminable injury recovery process can be considered an unlikely suspect.
Hopefully before too long names will be named rather than leaving all under a cloud.
