    Don't know if it's becoming that, but I could never live with myself if i had a gold medal stashed away that was won by cheating.. That would live with me for the rest of my life...

    I guess the games is all about the World in unity... But world and unity are oxymorons at the moment.. it doesnt interest me a great deal, because not many of the column inches these days aren't actually about pride/competition...

    the sad thing is that there are a small number of atheletes who have won gold medals by cheating and have no problems having it in the cupboard knowing they didnt deserve it. but i wouldnt say the olympics is becoming a competition of the best chemists, because i dont think a high number of atheletes are on drugs....

    Yeah i can attest to that.Most of them are from the US.The number of people from other countries on the juice would be quite few i think.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Yeah, I was talking more about atheletes who have won gold medals by cheating and have no problems having it in the cupboard knowing they didnt deserve it.

    It could be all about people's chemists in a legal fashion as well.

    The supplements that all these athletes take could make all the difference between failing and winning a medal.

    Wasn't there a East Germany middle distance runner who once tested positive because he claimed 'his tooth pase was spiked'?

    I laughed when I read that one.
