The system blames the athlete and the federation-blessed doping continues.
Are there enforceable criminal laws for doping in the UK? It's an honest question. In the U.S. as an example, there are none. There have been limited success in enforcement based on lying to law enforcement and such, but the burden of proof for a *criminal* doping trial is so high it's almost impossible to win a case. There are laws, but no enforcement. That is by design...
The same question asked a different way: It's impossible the U.S. cycling federation was not involved in Wonderboy's doping and somehow, some way only Wonderboy sees any penalties kind of penalties at all. None of those penalties were criminal and nothing happened to the federation. I would think the U.K. is set up similarly because it is a longtime IOC member.
