this BBC news page has some interesting information on how Dwain Chambers managed his drug programme and avoided detection by the authorities.
There is also a video of his former Balco supplier, Victor Conte, explaining the doping regime.
I have a funny attitude towards steroids. I would never take them because I would be scared of causing myself harm. However I have known people who have taken the gear, although this was around 15-20 years ago when things were less sophisticated. The drugs worked I could see that. They grew fast and got strong.
Is it cheating though? Yes. But sometimes I think that you could argue that altitude training is cheating or that particularly streamlined swimsuits are cheating. People are never on an level playing field.
It doesn't seem right, but maybe we should not be so nieve. The world is a tough and unpleasant place. People use drugs.
What I don't like is the deception - the lies that people are clean when they are not. If they are on gear, fine admit it.
What do you think? What do we do?
