Glad to see folks stepping up to inforce discipline and integrity into sports, because so many athletes have become overtaken in an environment that lacks both. This standsout as an entirely responsible example of the proper use of micro-management. If the atheltes won't do it on their own, they should be busted for breaking rules and laws. Sadly, but obviously the money spent on testing is a waste. Perhaps it's time to stop wasting so much money on urine tests, and use the hair sample tests. The hair tests are much more accurate and precise. Thank you folks for inforcing integrity and discipline!

No kidding. One might even think the sponsors would be willing to commit to fronting the higher cost of hair/folicle testing and impose contractual fiduciary accountability and liability against their sponsored athletes; thereby adding a notion and measure of integrity and discipline from their position as benificiaries and co-partners of the athletes, as well as promoters of products and corportations that serve the disciplined integrity of fair sport for the sake of a (perhaps fairy-tale) honest consumer (that they are also beneficiaries of). Everyone involved needs to realize a commitment to better environment without doping; we simply can't just target the athlets who are from the adolesence of their careers prey to motives beyond sport. Save the athletes and sport by unifying the entire spectrum of excectation, responsibility, and accountability.
