International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge has commended the United States on their ``courageous'' stance against drugs but warns they
should not forget their chequered past.
Earlier this year, the International Association of Athletic Federation's (IAAF) confirmed that traces of THG were found in samples given by some
American athletes who have so far not been identified, although Rogge is hopeful of resolving this issue by February of next year.
