Lance Armstrong Denies Charge by Floyd Landis of Doping; Landis Admits Use - WSJ.com
Until Landis's confession, I am not aware of a single athlete caught drugs cheating, be they Marion Jones, Ben Johnson, Hunter or Montgomery ever admit up front that they were using performance enhancing drugs. All
vehemently denied use, accusing officials, media and anybody else of lying, colluding, vendettas etc and continuing to do so even in the face of indisputable evidence of the fact. Marion Jones, for example held out for several years, only confessing her crimes when faced with jail time.
"Johnson's coach, Charlie Francis, a vocal critic of the IOC testing procedures, is the author of Speed Trap, which features Johnson heavily. In the book, he freely admits that his athletes were taking anabolic steroids, as he claims all top athletes at the time were, and also claims that Johnson could not possibly have tested positive for that particular steroid since Johnson actually preferred furazabol. He thought stanozolol made his body "feel tight"
I am not all that interested about watching elite professional sport nowadays, including the Tour de Fance, IAAF Athlteics, or the Olympics because cheating is rife. Gone are the late nights watching the Tour de France. Sadly, all performers at the top are tarnished by the same brush. It is a huge sporting tragedy.
