Olympics - Positive Drug Test!

I am not surprised to learn today that there has been a positive drug test on day four of the Olympics. I do have to admit that I am a bit surprised to find out that the person who tested positive is a bobsledder from Brazil! As I said at the beginning of the Olympics, I am expecting a fair bit of controversy at these games but this one comes out of left field. Some commentators have suggested that there are lots of elite athletes who take performance enhancing drugs - it is only the "stupid" ones that get caught - that might explain what happened to the Brazilian bobsledder.
