During the recent FIFA Women's World Cup, where Japan ultimately took top honors by beating the United States in a shootout, five ladies on North Korea's team tested positive for steroids. Steroids scandals in sports are becoming, admittedly, fairly common. Less common, however, was North Korea's explanation for the violation: Several of the women on the team were struck by lightning during a storm in June. To alleviate the (presumably severe) effects, the victims were given a treatment with musk deer glands, not an entirely uncommon drug among communities that still practice herbal and folk medicine. As part of that traditional therapy, supposedly, the women were "accidentally given steroids."
