I propose an olympics for strict amateurs that are not professional athletes and where everyone has rigorous drug testing.
Bizerl - what about the children put on drugs by over-competitive parents and school coaches? Cos that's what would happen - we have enough trouble constraining training regimes at present for children let alone if drugs were involved
I was looking at the drug detections for the 2012 Olympics. I was surprised to see an athlete banned for the use of Furosemide, a diuretic, which is often associated with a decrease in performance, except perhaps sports such as Greco-Roman wrestling with strict weight categories. However, apparently the use in sports is to help eliminate other drugs, and thus mask other substances. So, a diuretic may mean that the athlete believes they have something to hide.
