Three-time Olympic Swimmer and 10-time Olympic medalist
Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"Clean athletes have a responsibility to not remain silent when it comes to doping in sports...
It was announced on Friday that the International Olympic Committee had stripped the gold medal from the 2000 U.S. men's 1,600-meter relay team...
In this decision the IOC has done more to collar the cheats in sport than any anti-doping agency could hope to achieve. They sent a message to all clean athletes that doping will not be tolerated, and the people with the most to lose are the clean athletes, not the cheaters.
Cheaters only risk the truth being known. Clean athletes will have their dream ripped away from them for simply standing alongside a guilty teammate.
That's cruel. Is it cruel enough for clean athletes to stand up and take action against dopers, teammate or not?
Let's hope so."
