So, we have the Olympics and the Paralympics,good stuff in both of them, very impressive. Thing is athletes keep getting busted for doing dodgy pharmaceuticals.So..........why not give them their own championship? Imagine the 100metres,not just wind-assisted but also drug assisted.Is it possible for a human to run that distance in under 9 seconds.10metre long jumps? What is possible?

There was a programme where they were trying to figure out if the "blades" gave hima mechanical advantage. They decide no, and gave him a shot against "able bodied" runners and he came pretty much nowhere. Excuses were made, but fact is he still isn't clocking qualifying times.

I've always thought we should have drug olympics. Not only would it keep the real thing clean, it would also get more use out of the facilities. Just try not to get a seat at the end of the field when the javelin is on.

Precicely, look at those east Germans who broke all those records, they're either dead or have heart problems. FloJo although never proven a cheat died in her 30s amid rumour. There's no logic to say it would stop drug taking cheats in the usual athletics.

It's a strange subject to me. Everyone seems to be taking something and I'm bamboozled by what is legal and what isn't! Just when you think athletes are clean it turns out they have to ban yet another substance because they're all testing positive for it.
