    I am still mildly amused by how many here in Sweden actually believe that most olympic athletes are 'clean', and especially the swedish ones. .. and on a related topic there's soccer. Yikes. UEFA had an idea that they should make the sport of soccer clean. They stopped that real quick. I think financial powerhouses slammed down on that pretty hard. And with the crazy salaries some of these (simply amazing) players get it all makes sense too.

    Great post. "Track and field, swimming, cross-country skiing and cycling can no longer be saved." Neither can gymnastics, I guess.

    GASP! You're not telling me that pretty much everybody in the Olympics is a juicer!

    That's absolute nonsesne. Everyone knows that only athletes from the former Eastern Bloc use steroids because they're dirty cheaters. All other Olympic athletes are as pure as the driven snow, competing out of sheer idealism to promote good will among men.

    In the US of A only weightlifters used to use steroids, and they only did it a little bit after Bob Hoffman discovered that the dirty cheating Soviets were getting ahead with pharmaceutical assistance (something no red-blooded American ever even thought about before).

    So take that story and stick it where the sun don't shine. I will remain staunch in my belief in a clean, steroid-free, wholesome Olympian spirit, harkening back to the days of the loin-clothed ancient Greek athletes whose idea of doping was the imbibing of raw honey.

    You and me both. "swedes don't take roids", "the controls are so tight here". Yeah, right.

    Lets just make juicing mandatory so that everyone is starting out "equal". Just kidding. I now wonder if even the Worlds Chess Champions are using roids..Dennis

    I thought they competed nude! Given their culture of pederasty and homosexuality, maybe that's how they got their buzz, I mean, edge.

    Here in Canada, I heard a lady news person talk about how she thought that the olympic athletes were not just outstanding athletes, but also the most fit , healthy people on earth. She had no clue that to push your body to the extremes that many olympians do is neither healthy or safe.
    Many of these athletes will carry injures with them into old age, long after these games.
    Theres a price to pay to be the best.

    Do you think the pingpong players Juice too?
