err, i didnt hear anyone claiming that micheal phelps was using anything 4 years ago in bejing.
and that was in china. no one from the chinese team questioned mr phelps' stunning achievement.
but because theres some improvement in the chinese team, they're using perfomance enhancing drugs?
i could say sour grapes

In this Olympics in particular, there seem to be a lot of Chinese swimmers in particular who are producing "amazing" and "unheard of" results "never seen before".
Could it be that the Chinese have discovered some sort of performance enhancer that isn't detectable under regular drug testing?
UK media is also reporting that the Chinese officials are conducting "hundreds" of drug tests on their own athletes outside the bounds of the regular games drug testing, it's almost like they're making sure that whatever they're doing isn't showing up on regular testing.
A friend of mine who is a gym rat tells me that there is a new technique on the market that makes your brain neurons fire just like if you had taken steroids, but it isn't steroids and wouldn't show up on drug tests, forget what he called it.
Anyone have any ideas on this?
