I am writting an article for one of subjects at my university and my topic is why drug testing in sports is (or isn’t) meaningless.
Many, many people claim that at some level you divide athletes into those who are/were on gear and got caught and those, who are and didn’t get caught.
- Some substances are still legal (or can be legal if you have some disease to be cured, like asthma, what let’s be honest, isn’t hard to get documented if you have a doc amongst friends or family)
- Some substances can be cleared out of body (this especially interests me) if you have enough time before the tests.
- Some substances aren’t covered by the most popular tests.
Is there anyone insterested in sharing their knowledge with me? How exactly do guys at pro levels pass the tests? We are excluding things like having someone else’s urine/blood, because that’s given. I am rather looking for holes in the system.
