Top Government Witness in Tony Galea Case Denies Tiger Woods Received Steroids

  • Tweet

The attorney for the top government witness in the Anthony Galea case categorically denied that Tiger Woods received anabolic steroids or any other performance-enhancing drug from Dr. Anthony Galea. Tiger Woods was one of many top professional athletes who sought the services of the Canadian doctor. The media has repeatedly linked Tiger Woods with Anthony Galea often implying that Woods must have been the recipient of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).

Galea was indicted on four steroid and drug related charges after his assistant Mary Anne Catalano was caught smuggling human growth hormone across the U.S.-Canadian border. Catalano’s attorney denied that Tiger Woods ever received PEDs in an email to the New York Daily News.

Rod Personius, who represents Galea’s former assistant Mary Anne Catalano, told the Daily News Monday in an email, “I tell you categorically that Tiger did NOT receive either banned or performance enhancing drugs when treating with Dr. Galea.”

Canadian doctor Anthony Galea pleaded guilty earlier this month to illegally smuggling performance-enhancing drugs into the United States and providing them to various professional athletes. Galea admitted to routinely smuggling human growth hormone (hGH) and Actovegin across the United States – Canadian border.

U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara did his best to turn the Galea case into a celebrity athlete witch-hunt when he ordered Dr. Galea to reveal the names of his celebrity clients who were receiving the performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). Galea’s attorney’s reluctantly provided the names of some of Galea’s clients but did not disclose details about their respective treatments. At least one player for the National Football League (NFL) had told investigators that he received HGH from Galea.
