The Olympics


News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

Saturday, 31 July 2004


It is reported that the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has conducted approximately 5000 drug tests on athletes, in the first half of 2004; in readiness for the Olympics 2004, which are being held in Athens.

Almost half of the tests were "surprise" tests (the testers turned up at athletes' houses wearing red noses and shouted "Surprise!"). However, 242 were done with advance notice being given to the athletes.

It seems that 12 tests came back positive.

In my view drug testing should be compulsory for all the athletes attending the Olympics, and other major sporting events; that is the only way to clean up the image of sport.

What are peoples' views on this?
