The UK will launch of a confidential 24-hour hotline that will encourage anonymous callers (athletes, coaches, support staff, parents and friends etc) to provide tip-offs about those they think might be cheats, or supply and traffic in performance-enhancing substances during the Olympics.
All very well, maybe.
However, I guarantee that this will be abused.
What better way to put an athlete off his/her game by having them investigated for drugs the day before an event?
Who would want to do that?
Fellow competitors, bloody minded individuals, people with money bet on the event.
The list is endless.
