Sadly, I found this out because it was on the front of the Yahoo News page, as its lead sports story. Typical -- although I firmly support drug testing, I find it supremely annoying that track & field never makes the front page unless the story is a drug cheat getting caught. Apparently, that tendency has moved from newsprint to the Web. I wish sports editors would find front-page space to cover actual competitions.

Is being stripped of the medal his only punishment?
