I will post periodically on doping issues. Let me say that regardless of the sport or individual that there must ZERO TOLERANCE toward doping in sport. If an athlete is caught they must be banned for life. Their coaches should also be penalized and if they have multiple athletes caught they also should be banned from coaching. There is no fine line in regard to doping you are either for it or against it. It is interesting to note at the recently completed world Championship in Athletics that there were NO POSITIVE dope tests. That could mean several things.

  1. The sport is now clean, very doubtful.
  2. The outlaws are ahead of the law again, very likely.
  3. There was a massive cover-up so as not to taint the sport, quite possible, the sponsors and IAAF have a lot to lose.
