Oxygen is definitely performance enhancing but what is the real definition of PED (not rhetorical)? I assume something beyond the ordinary. But even that does not explain why creatine is allowed. So beyond the ordinary without hormonal activity? That would allow oxygen, food and water AND creatine.
But what of low oxygen tents? I think they were banned but they represent only a very indirect hormonal effect. i guess that represents the ethical borderline. Does anyone know if any anabolic activity is ascrcibed to creatine, direct or indirect? I have always assumed it just represents a specialised energy source.
