As my witty office-mate noted, "You really don't want people on drugs throwing javelins around" :-)

Additional related attempt at wittiness: I went to Europe to catch the Bislett Games, and first went to London, where I saw a 2nd-century A.D. replica of the famed discus thrower statue at the British Museum. I couldn't help noticing that his penis was broken off. How's that for a warning against steroids?

methylphenidate=ritalin, so let's not make too big a deal out of this. Like Gatlin, one suspects she had no idea. Not illegal in collegiate competition.

Yeah, I suspect my allergy medicine (a steroid nasal spray) would probably get me in trouble if I were still competing.
