Quote Of The Day
“Absolutely, [things are much better now]. In 2004, when I first made the Olympics, [people would ask me], ‘How many of the medalists were doping?’ [and] I’d say, ‘How many of the finalists are doping?’ and I’d say it was much higher than 50% of the finalists. Whereas now, it’s only really the top three or four guys [where] there’s a high percentage that are doing it. But, just like with the [Rashid] Ramzi situation in 2008, it becomes more evident (that they are doping now) because they are so much further ahead – the one or two or three that are doing it. Whereas in the late ’90s, early 2000s, I think there was such a high percentage doing it that it wasn’t obvious as they all were ahead at the same time. … I think as a whole, the testing has gotten a whole lot better. … By and large, I think most people are above board.”
