IMO in the modern era the Yanks have always doped! They let Carl Lewis run after testing positive in the trials. He has been living off Seoul ever since Johnson was DQ'd, hypocrite!Galic Ho said:Gotta be fair to them. Their swimmers looked normal. I thought Addlington would win at least one gold, possibly two with the 400m and 800m free. She got whooped. She is 23. Way down on her Beijing times. A difference I can put down to the swim suits rule changes.
Nah, the USA in the pool. 50% of ALL golds is just ridiculous. Historically they win a lot, but I don't remember it ever being this high. Then there is their men and women sprinters. Thank God LaShawn Merritt apparently 'pulled' a hamstring in the 400m mens first round heat. He's as bad as Gatlin. Anyone remember his BS response to getting popped a few years back? The whole "I was getting laid and having a ton of sex and needed an upper from a little blue tablet." Gosh, come to think of it, given the number of condoms thrown delivered to the Olympic village (150,000 or 15 per athlete), surprised those who get popped don't just claim they were banging anything that moves...hence their positive.
I think the smaller sports, like sailing, hockey, fencing etc probably have some forms of cheating trying to get that edge but nothing like the major sports.
While TeamGB are getting a bashing, does not necessarily mean other nations are doing it clean, it just means the Brits for a change have the better programs in certain sports.
Maybe the Swimming coach at Sky has meant the Aussies have failed in the pool
