    I'm still suspicious of some of these performances on the track,as the economic downturn accentuates the perilous risk the downtrodden athlete will take with his own health to ameliorate his or her bank balance. Whilst not wishing to cast aspersions on individual athletes it should be fairly obvious to whom I am alluding.

    I would like viewers to watch the two clips here and answer two questions: how is it possible for an athlete of any discipline to pass 160 drug tests whilst not being clean,and is the individual athlete to blame,do we blame their coach or the wider societal pressure..
