They could have been tested for anything from steroids to tylenol. The tests are very sensitive.

Hello...especially the women - they have obviously taken steroids. Normal people can't be that big.

Is it just me or is the IOC of 2004 much more adept at catching dopers? I don't recall an olympics with more talk of banning athletes than this year's games. Good for the IOC. How else are we to know if the human body has limitless or limited natural potential unless you have clean athletes working to try to break records?
