Olympics - Positive Drug Test! (again)

Well frankly this is more what I thought we could expect. A Russian biathlete has been stripped of her silver medal and sent home after failing her drug test. I am continually surprised by the fact that these athletes get caught cheating. I am not surprised that they are cheating!
Talked to some people a few days ago who were complaining about how Canadians were doing at the Olympics. Medal count is now at 9 and I would think that the Salt Lake total from 2002 of 17 total medals is easily within reach. The predicition of a high of 25 at the start of the Olympics now seems a little too optimistic but we shall see. Enjoy the Games and watch for more positive drug tests to come!
