He's the one that was caught.

An indication that there us still widespread doping going on is how many world records fall Olympics after Olympics (this one included). Human beings are not improving, evolving that fast but the doping is. The dopers seem to be a decade ahead of the testers and it appears to suit the IOC just fine.

Improved performance is not just due to doping, although I do agree with you in how far advanced a lot of nations doping programs are, in comparison to IOC testing compliance.

I could have swore that CBC (could be wrong) had a current swimmer attempt a run wearing the same gear (possibly even the same starting stand,etc.) as the 1970's era swimmer used...and the modern swimmer produced a worse time. The swimmer even commented on how much more respect he had for the previous ones, based on that.

Training, however, has become far more intense and physical development has become a science over the past fifty years to where we've seriously redefined what fitness looks like and what performance looks like.

Charlton Heston looked really buff for his time.

But Heston's a slob compared to Michael Phelps:

And, of course:

Image

Training changed over the past so many years and the science of how to eke out just that much more performance from the human body has progressed insanely.

Yes, there's doping. But not everyone is doing it.

Hell, even Eddie the Eagle (who no one accused of doping) turned in what would have been a gold medal performance just fifty years before he sailed down the ski jump.

Things have simply come a long way is all.

Looks can be deceiving.

These guys don't appear very 'fit' to today's standards.

Grab their tools, and fell a tree that size.

How 'fit' one's appearance is, as a determining factor for eligibility/performance, is a very modern phenomenon. A very sad one as well.

Ben Johnson became the poster child for how bad doping was and still is.

You sound just exactly like Lance Armstrong. No, sorry. Human brings have not sudddnly become @0-20-30% faster without "assistance". Phelps could easily be a doper. Lance was also wrapped on the flag and borne aloft on the wings of Freedom Eagles. There is no magic.

A goal from a direct penalty kick in the first half and a goal in the 2nd half was all it took for Germany to defeat Canada and advance to the Gold medal round against Sweden. Canada will now play the host Brazil for the Bronze medal.

Too bad, but the Germans played more clinically. Our women created some good chances but couldn't find the net. :oops:

And both men jogged the last 50m, maybe the last 75m for Bolt.

De Grasses sure does weird things with his right arm when he runs. When he starts it's a normal back and forth, 2 seconds later it flairs to the side. I noticed there was something weird with it but didn't know what until CBC did a story on it. They said any coach worth their weight would try to get him to stop that, but in this case it's a, " if it ain't broke don't try fixing it."

There was a debate this morning on Ched if Taxpayers shpuld be paying athlettees $1500.000 a month to train for the Olympics or should they be paid more? Also Andre De Grasse signed a $12 million dollar endorsement deal with Puma which means he has to drop out of USC because NCAA rules forbid college athletes being paid for sports endorsements.
