Little doubt that most top Olympic track athletes were doping. What ticked me was Carl Lewis acting all high and mighty and he was as dirty as the rest of them.

But it is this Andre Jackson character is the most unsettling because it's basically race fixing if true. Cheating is a personal decision but race fixing/test fixing is a conspiracy. Why does this Jackson character need access to the room before the drug test. Even the coach said they were sneaky in getting him in. So why 'sneak' him in. And how did Johnson smart enough to avoid being caught for years all the sudden get caught at the Olympics???

But since Carl Lewis is thinking about politics that is my confirmation of the true nature of Mr Lewis and the Olympic track community.

Some consider the Seoul 100 Meter Final dirtiest race ever. .

Ironically today it came out that Lance Armstrong was associated wit the most sophisticated and professional doping program ever in biking anyway.

But this still brings to question how did Ben Johnson pass years of drug testing at other meets and fails to do the same regime that helped him pass those other drug tests. Setting aside personal opinions he doesn't seem like a idiot. All these guys: Johnson, Bonds, Armstrong were smart enough to incoporate nutrition into their training program along with their raw talents and passion for their sport. They are not idiots. They might be arrogant and even liers but you need smarts to dope and not get caught and/or have it not kill you.

Which brings the question again-wtf was this Andre Jackson character doing with Ben Johnson before his drug test. And would Ben be stupid enough to ignore all the how to not get caught procedures at the Olympics?
