Arguably Aouita benefitted from being the first African drug cheat.

His range was produced entirely by his PED use and only stood out because he was the only guy on the sauce in the 80s. For example, his 10000 personal best was lauded at the time, but as soon as EPO appeared it wouldn't even be a top 10 ranking for the season.
What sauce was that? EPO only became available in 1989 and widespread use didn't start with athletics & cycling until the mid-90s. And I don't think Morocco had the resources for blood doping like East Germany & the Finns.

Aouita was simply the best!
