No fun allowed! We need to eliminate any reason people have for participating here.

I bet a The Clinic panel could get 20-30% or more positives from one sample per atlete they'd select.
I'd donate to get some retrospective HGH testing done.

The classic signs. Freakishly huge muscles and shrunken peen.

This is why I cannot take Olympic drug testing seriously. They take gold medals away from sixteen year olds for taking a cold medication while others look like they are using more AAS than a gym full of body builders.

We can assume that the brittish team are living the magic wands since the Tour. Who would check them in their home turf?

Yes. I have no doubts Nadal began his career doped up, but nowadays, yes. Nadal never destroys his opponents like the Sky/brits doing these days. In fact, i think the brits have set a new all time low in doping matters and have carte blanché from McQuaid et. al. in doing so. The eternal darkness is upon us.

Quote:
Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, both riding for the Sky team and representing Great Britain will be race’s centre of attention as Cavendish seeks to add an Olympic title to his impressive palmares.
"It would be great if it happened because it's another edition to this fairy-tale story," McQuaid told The Associated Press. "It would be great for cycling and great for the Olympic Games."
According to Pat McQuaid, crowds are set to flood the streets of London for the 250km race. This is in part due to the favourable circumstances that have led into the London Games. Cavendish also won the Olympic test event in London last year and McQuaid believes the popularity of cycling in Great Britain will be evident come race day.
"There will probably be the biggest crowd ever seen at an Olympic Games . I’m predicting something close to a million people could be on the roadside," he said in an official UCI release.'

It's almost unfathomable that the Jamaican team do not have a real off season drug testing programme. No wonder their sprinters are so fast!
It will be a great day when Bolt gets exposed as a fraud.
