Garvan Grant, journalist at the Sunday Business Post (Ireland), stated the following information in an Aug. 3, 2008 article published by Sunday Business Post titled "Don't Spoil the Sports":

“From nicotine and caffeine to cocaine…everyone needs a little boost now and again… Whether we like it or not, drugs have become a part of modern sport. Instead of condemning them, all athletes should be allowed to take whatever substances they feel will enhance their performance. Drugs are one of mankind’s greatest achievements and the Olympic Games are a great chance to celebrate that. Trying to be ‘faster, higher and stronger’ shouldn’t include the proviso that you can only achieve those things in a particular way.”
