So, it turns out that most of the world's top sprinters have been running on more than just "bread and water". Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell and four other sprinters have all had positive tests announced yesterday evening, with rumours of several more big names "still to come".
Given the history of the sport it's hardly a surprise, but it is very unusual for so many athletes to get caught at the same time. Any ideas as to what's going on? Are new testing methods catching people out, or has athletics finally decided to follow cycling's lead and try to announce all its doping scandals in July?
The responses are hilarious though! Powell is trotting out the usual "I never knowingly took anything!" Tough, pal - you're responsible for whatever goes in to your body.
Gay has "withdrawn from the World Championships". Erm, I don't think you can try and make out that this is your decision, mate!
PS. 7 of the 9 fastest 100m runners in history have now had positive drug tests.

Quoting Dano1977 (Reply 3): The 2013 tour of California bike race is sponsored by largest makers of EPO in the world
It has been for several years. I'm for letting them do whatever they want. They all know what the side effects and health risks are. If they want to jeopardize their health just to be a household name or have a record, let them. In 10-20 years, when they have problems, I'll say "oh, well".
