"idiotic at best.. how many collegians would fail a test for ALL banned substances, marijuana amoung them
bunch o hypocrites you are"
I am not one to get overly concerned about NCAA rules (which, by the way, I find to be ridiculous in many cases). However, the case of performance enhancing substances goes beyond rules and to the very heart of sport. The NCAA meet an opporunity for young men and women to represent their schools by putting their bodies--the product of a lifetime of hard work and training--up against each other in fair competition. Every athlete should have the right to know that no matter where they place, they pushed themselves to their absolute limit and were beaten by athletes who did the same, not by athletes who took the easy route; who falsely amplified their own abilities. Perhaps, by the letter of the law, a test conducted in Jamaica is not valid in the NCAA. I, for one, feel that the moral integrity of sport is more important than the bylaws of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
