We’re Drug Free!!!

3

As some of you may know, I’m an avid reader of DIGG. I love the semi-random mix of tech, social, and political news that is pushed to the top. Well, I was checking it out this morning and there was a story that caught my eye about steroids gone bad. Given the current spate of drug-related track news that seems to have eclipsed the actual performances on the track, I figured this might be a good diversion to show that track is at least one sport that is trying to control drug use. In sports like bodybuilding, football, and baseball, they have farcical testing procedures implemented that allow them to say they drug test all their athletes and that it isn’t a problem. The reality is that the testing is often done in-house and cover-ups are more rampant than they ever were in track and field. Take a look at the article. I think you’ll find it amusing. My only question is this- Are those first couple pics real? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person look like that.
