I guess that you and all the post take the debate to ONE SINGLE AND WRONG direction. The highest percent of the doping among top runners is not to enhance the performance or WORLD RECORD OR INDIVIDUAL BEST PERFORMANCE. THE DRUG IS TAKE JUST TO GET THE BEST PLACE IN COMPETITION. Sometimes when the runner is still out of shape but got a compromise on an interesting competition.
Sorry, but this is your argument before or after 2001 is tricky. Your argument is this. If the world best were done AFTER 2001 you say that this proves that ther´s not drugs on that performances because the drug was in between 1990 and 2000. But when the world best performances are´t done AFTER 2001 you got the argument that the reason is that the training methodology for that event specialties doesn´t improve long ago.
One aspect is your individual option to not use drugs – ANY KIND, I respect and I trust on you, or who else I can trust ? I guess that if you don´t you shall fight those that suspect or false accusations over you.
Other different aspect is your continuous deny that DRUGS ENHANCE THE PERFORMANCE.
Look. As a start point I´m not focused on individual performance, or what particular kind of drug does or don´t. I´m not focus on EPO. Today is EPO, in the past was amphetamines and tomorrow will be something we really don´t know but some people are actual searching and working to create new drugs, you know that.
I guess that out of your genuine and sincere individual option to not use drugs, just by your scientific knowledge of our beloved sport you may assume that this sport is full of drug use and in the PAST TILL TODAY SOME PERFORMANCES AND SOME RESULTS WERE/ARE TOTALLY FALSE THE WAY AREN`T JUST THE CONSEQUENCE OF TALENT AND TRAINING ENHANCE. That wouldn´t not put you down, but would put you up. Honest people would think “we don´t know the extent of drugs in athletics in general and in middle to long distance in particular. But Renato primes for his genuinity and we got admiration because at the same time he denounces some drug scenarios, he doesn´t use it.
This debate was been simple focused about how to maximize the performance by the use of drugs, when IT´s a FACT THAT THE DRUF USE IS MAINLY TO WIN AND GET THE BEST IN COMPETITIONS WUITHOUT THE INTENTION TO BREAK THE WORD RECORD OR THE INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL BEST.
I show you the word best performances and I might start by the woman, and from the point we know that the DRUG USE IS NOT CONFESSED (it´s a fact) there it´s just necessary to got GOOD SENSE, nothing more than good sense and some knowledge of this sport to be aware that ALL OF THE WORLD RECORDS AND WORLD BEST WOMAN PERFORMANCES FROM 100m to the 3000m and some of the best 5000m, 10000m ALL WERE DONE WITH DRUG AID. It´s not enough for you claim your innocence, it´s necessary to judge that THIS OUR RUNNING SPORT IS FULL OF DRUG USE.

2 - 47.99 Jarmila Kratochvílová 10/08/1983 – second best is older than the Kratochvílov world record. 29 years ago., done by the same runner that is the 800m WR recordist since 1983.

Maserat Defar is only the recent one to go to the world top ten. However to do trust that Tatyana Kazankina did just 0.42 slower than Paula Radcliff in the years of 84 ? ! ? ! almost 30 years ago ?
Mesarat Defar doesn´t uses a rich methodology, bestbetter methodology than Tatayana Kazankina ?

I guess that out of your genuine and sincere individual option to not use drugs, just by your scientific knowledge of our beloved sport you may assume that this sport is full of drug use and in the PAST TILL TODAY SOME PERFORMANCES AND SOME RESULTS WERE/ARE FALSE THE WAY AREN`T JUST THE CONSEQUENCE OF TALENT AND TRAINING ENHANCE. That wouldn´t not put you down, but would put you up. Honest people would think “we don´t know the extent of drugs in athletics in general and in middle to long distance in particular. But Renato primes for his genuinity and we got admiration because at the same time he denounces some drug scenarios, he doesn´t use it.
