That's a red herring. No one is claiming there are no dopers among those groups. In the Prefontaine days the Norwegians were notorious blood dopers, which was legal btw. And US athletes have been caught.
In Kenya there is a major doping culture. EPO use is almost acceptable. Couple that with a govt that looks the other way and the difficulties in catching the cheaters, and you get a major, systemic problem. Think of MLB a few years back. There was significant peer and professional pressure to dope just to keep up, and MLB did not test. That was always a recipe for a major cheating scandal. The US sports authorities might be inept, but I have not seen evidence of complete corruption. On the other hand in certain countries you can easily see that the athletes are getting the green light. If the Kenyan authorities ignore the issue, there is almost no way to catch the cheaters. I would say percentage wise any nation where the govt is giving the green light is going to have higher percentages of dopers. The Kenyan results are not natural and not the result of hard work, genetics, etc. EPO turns mules into race horses.
Well said, but you shouldn't even have to explain this to them. The likes of El K and Observski should be banned. That level of doping apologism shouldn't be tolerated here.
Does worry me a bit that athletes aren't more public about their concerns with the doping apologism allowed here. They complain on Instagram about alleged 'toxic masculinity' and 'female body shaming', but they don't appear to mind the likes of El K spamming the boards with his claims of an IAAF cover up of the 'fact' that every Western athlete who can run fast is doping, and regular doping busts in East Africa somehow prove this.
Any other freedoms you want taken away?
