    Default 30 Athletes Fail Drug Tests

    VANCOUVER -- More than 30 athletes who were expected to compete in the Vancouver Olympic Games were barred from competition after failing pre-Games testing, the New York Times is reporting, quoting David Howman, the director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

    Howman is holding a news conference Thursday at 11 a.m. in Vancouver.

    Names and home countries have not been released.

    However, Canadian Olympic Team press chief Sylvie Bigras said Canadian athletes are not affected. "To the best of my knowledge, I don't know of any Canadians failing pre-Games drugs testing."

    Ah, the ole' Silken Laumann defence.
    It seems minor, nevertheless the athletes education level should be to a point where they know the difference.

    Maybe it's just easier to let you know when I'm being serious.

    He just had the worst doctor in the field.
    The only thing wrong, with what he did, is he got caught.
