Carl Lewis on failed drug tests

Lewis: 'Who cares I failed drug test?'


http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2003/ap ... ncanmackay

Carl Lewis has broken his silence on allegations that he was the beneficiary of a drugs cover-up, admitting he had tested positive for banned substances but claiming he was just one of "hundreds" of American athletes who were allowed to escape bans.

"There were hundreds of people getting off," he said. "Everyone was treated the same."

Lewis has now acknowledged that he failed three tests during the 1988 US Olympic trials, which under international rules at the time should have prevented him from competing in the Seoul games two months later.

gh can explain; I do not remember the details, but it was for something like a typical dose of cold medicine. About the biggest non-story there is. If there was any 'there' there, it would be plainly laid out in many venues, including past threads here.
