- Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
“I am sincerely remorseful and it continues to be my mission to be a positive role model mentoring to athletes to avoid the dangers and public and personal humiliation of doping. And the harm it brings to the sport of athletics.
I have cooperated fully with the United States federal investigation to clean up our sport of track and field working towards it becoming drug free.”
