Just a rant here. A lot of us on here compete in various sports and activities. Well, my main field of competiton is Master’s Track and Field, specifically the throwing events. Depending on the governing body and the event ages can go from 35 up. Senior Olympics start at 50. So what’s my rant. Drug testing! Or, I guess I should say, the need to drug test. I really never considered (naively, I quess) anyone at these meets would be using performance enhancing drugs.
Seems however that several competitors have tested positive for various substances. And no, not geritol. I won’t get into the roid debate pros and cons and the use of drugs in sports. I do know if your using “stuff” at our age you got a serious problem. Let’s face it, what’s to gain? There’s no money involved. Not a whole lot of products looking for our endorsements. Bragging rights is about it. And if it’s that important to you there are some other issues you need to resolve in your life. Just venting. As long as they are checking for Jack Daniels and chicken wings I guess I should pass.
