The Olympics


News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

It seems that those competing in the weightlifting part of the Olympic Games are either remarkably unlucky, or remarkably stupid.

It is reported that an eighth competitor in the weightlifting section has tested positive for taking performance enhancing drugs.

The hapless competitor, to add his name to "list of honour", is a Greek whose identity has not been revealed (as at the time of writing).

However, speculation in the local press named Leonidas Sampanis as the likely dope head. He will face losing his bronze medal if found guilty.

The only way to eliminate this problem is to either test all competitors on a regular basis, or to simply allow them to take whatever they want; and damn the consequences.

Views anyone?
