  1. They all cheat, what’s new? I don’t condone it but it’s a fact. Sport will never go back to anything even remotely resembling “clean.”

  2. Volker Pispers, an epic german comedian put it best: "Of course they dope. They all do. Nobody wants to watch achievable athletic performance. Stop the banning and just make them print on the trikot what they took. So we know which one works."

  3. Unfortunately, track and field has created an environment where it actually makes sense to cheat. cheat and get away with winning a few races and getting paid for it until you get caught and then suspended in a sport where you are not really famous enough to be forever shamed anyways.

  4. I can’t remember a more exciting time in baseball than Barry bonds, mark McGuire, Jose canseco etc. just stop banning substances. Leave the choice up to the individual. You’re never gonna stop it, they just come up with new legal methods that later get banned. It’s a cycle that you can’t stop.

  5. If you see a runner decrease their times by .50 secs in sprints, in one season.. if they are dropping seconds off of their times … guarantee using PEDs… In my opinion… I’d say 70% + are doing something illegal

  6. America, shame on you. Sore losers. What was the time of the silver winner? About 2 seconds more. Caster Semenya? Remember her? Nora is a champion. Deal with it. Africa is on the rise. We are the best human specimen on this earth. And you white folk will disappear. While our men and women will dominate sports for another 1000 years. Even in America black athletes dominated. Shame on you for making false accusations because tou don't want and cannot compete with the might of Africa.

  7. Why don't you ever cover Cristian Coleman's constant dodging of the doping authorities on his mission to evade being caught but constantly gets a slap on the wrist. And the fact the your golden hero Carl Lewis is a multiple times drug cheat, Tyson Gay over did it trying to beat Bolt & Justin Gatlin's shameful, multi-times being caught? I get it, it's not that bad if it's as an American huh!. If u wanna speak on level playfield, then highlight them all & not just the other countries, because the US has a lot of them.

  8. I don’t understand, what is a cheating method? Is it using chemical substances or is it the way you actually do your training? If it is the way you do your training, such as not training in winter as the video said, then I don’t understand why that is cheating.

  9. You think this is bad, wait for biological doping. Born a man, and simple sex change, call themselves women and compete in women sports with load of testosterone in their blood. Go ahead, swallow that sport fan!

  10. Remember cheatings elegit substances Ben Johnson for 1988 Olympic Games and band for three years. Olympic Games and subsequent disqualification

    On September 24, 1988, Johnson won the 100 metres final at the Summer Olympics in Seoul, lowering his own world record to 9.79 seconds. He was the first Canadian sprinter since Percy Williams in 1928 to win the 100 metres at the Olympics. Johnson later remarked that he would have been even faster if he hadn't raised his hand in the air just before he hit the tape.

    However, Park Jong-sei of the Olympic Doping Control Center found that Johnson's urine sample contained stanozolol, and he was disqualified three days after the race. He later admitted having used steroids when he ran his 1987 world record, which caused the IAAF to rescind that record as well. Johnson and coach Francis complained that they used performance-enhancing agents in order to remain on equal footing with the other top athletes. In testimony before the Dubin inquiry into drug use in sport, Francis charged that Johnson was only one of many cheaters, and he just happened to get caught. Often dubbed "the dirtiest race in history," the 1988 100 m final had only two out of a total of eight runners who remained clean throughout their careers (Calvin Smith and Robson da Silva).

    Johnson's coach, Charlie Francis, a vocal critic of the IOC testing procedures, is the author of Speed Trap, which features Johnson heavily. In the book, he freely admits that his athletes were taking anabolic steroids, as he claims all top athletes at the time were, and also claims that Johnson could not possibly have tested positive for that particular steroid since Johnson actually preferred furazabol. He thought stanozolol made his body "feel tight". The numerous athletes using performance-enhancing drugs at the time understood how long before a race, and possible drug test, they should stop using the drugs. Johnson later claimed that André A. Jackson, Lewis' Santa Monica Track Club teammate, who was inside the drug testing room in Seoul, may have placed the stanozolol in one of the beers Johnson drank in order to make urine for his test. He admitted he gave him beer. His response to the stanozolol blame: "Of course I can say I didn't. But I can also say I did, too. What's the benefit?"

  11. I don't mean to be controversial but I'd be interested to hear anyone's response to these. Opinion #1: So doping is only cheating because it's illegal. Why not make all and every substance allowable? Opinion #2: Athletes do use various allowable substances or levels of substances that would not be obtained by simply having a healthy, balanced diet. So why are these allowed? In other words, what makes a substance allowable or illegal (in sporting terms)?

    The same goes for footwear: the use of spikes clearly makes a runner faster than someone without spikes? So now everyone uses spikes. Why not ban spikes so that everyone's achievement is based solely on personal ability?

    I look forward to your opinions.
