Adam Nelson Should Get Awarded Gold at 2016 Olympics in Rio 12/8/2012 1:42PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
Why not have a ceremony in the main stadium during one of the nights of track & field awarding the new medals to Adam Nelson and everyone else who moved up as a result of the doping? Especially for the former fourth place finisher who never had a chance to stand on the podium, seems like a no brainer thing to do.

No chance of that happening, unfortunately. The IOC won't want to draw attention to the rampant doping.

Because Adam Nelson is clearly doping as well

You don't simply throw the exact same distance and then farther in competition than a doper without yourself doping.

So if I dope, and go throw the shotput 5 meters, being the out of shape distance runner that I am, that means that anyone who throws the same distance or farther than I did is automatically doping?
