More doping in the news

NY Times Article

Mary Jones admitted yesterday that she used performance-enhancement drugs to win 5 medals in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The best quote from the above article that explains this case:

"Because unlike baseball, which played deaf, dumb and blind to the culture of sports pharmacology until 2002, the Olympics was long into chasing down cheats."

Cycling is the same way. If you get caught using said drugs, you are banned for 2 years from any race.
