Quote Of The Day
“It would be delusional to say the London Games was ‘in the words of many yesterday’ dirtier than Games before. … The big message was for athletes to recognise that just because they may be ahead of the testing technology at a particular moment in their career, it does not mean they can lie easy in their beds until excitable grandchildren pour (sic) over Olympic medals in their dotage. They will be caught. They will then have the discomfort of explaining to those grandchildren why they no longer possess those medals. More is being done to catch cheats than ever before.”
