That's Ben Johnson isn't it? I remember the scandal well, but it was years ago, and that guy paid the penalty I think.Greedo said:There have been many over the years in all sports. Even snooker with Neil Foulds taking beta blockers

He did indeed. Big time. He was basically a kid from a poor community who worshipped his coach (who died recently) and did everything that he thought was good for him. I think that is probably quite common. Of course, it's easy for British people to point at foreign drugs cheats because we don't have any, do we? Or more to the point, if we do, they still don't win!661-Pete said:That's Ben Johnson isn't it? I remember the scandal well, but it was years ago, and that guy paid the penalty I think.
It can be a problem.wafflycat said:Should I ever wish to compete in just about any sport I think I'd be banned as I have two banned substances I have to take for medical conditions!
Ben Johnson, after serving his ban, came back and was tested positive again, FFS!mangaman said:PS I agree with FM regarding Ben Jonson. I believe it's true that every runner in that final has tested positive since (or been busted in some other way) and Jonson was the scapegoat
