The Rio Olympics have been plunged into a new doping scandal after the Kenyan team’s track and field manager was secretly filmed offering to protect cheating athletes from the drugs testing authorities.
I wonder what happened to the good old days of actually winning because you were truly the best and not simply doped to the gills?

Ha! Rich Piana's name sprung to mind immediately upon seeing this thread title.
I suspect all world class athletes use performance enhancers, & I agree with the notion they should be allowed to level the playing field.
They could at least be used under supervision to mitigate some of the associated risks.
I believe that if one knows what one is doing one can avoid being popped for PEDs on pretty much any current test.
In one documentary I saw a bunch of athletes were surveyed about drug use. Most of them said they would use if they were guaranteed to be the best in the world in their chosen field, even if it meant dying in, say, 5 years. Attitude of champions?
