Okay.... next question:
How does the diuretic furosemide enhance a fencer's performance?

I believe diuretics can be used as masking agents, which I think is why they're banned.

Perhaps for this purpose we can use the Wikipedia entry for this drug, which states in part, as tandfman has pointed out,

"Along with some other diuretics, furosemide is also included on the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned drug list due to its alleged use as a masking agent for other drugs."

Okay, so which other drugs might be beneficial to a fencer?

An even more scary headline was this one posted at LetsRun:

"Russian Subs going to Beijing"

As for the fencing drug, kryptonite might work.

I am tempted to make a cutting remark here, but I probably would not be able to score any points with it.
