Doping scandals have cast a shadow over the Olympic Games. Until we eliminate drugs from sports, we should at least update our athlete promos.

Black athlete lost to a white athlete and immediately the reason is doping. This is ridiculous! Sometimes, the white athletes are better than the black athletes, even when it comes to running. This russian dope scandal is a total farse! A fragment of the cold war expressed in sport politics. Bullshit!
I think we should have a special athletic event. All athletes, coaches and members of national doping associations caught doping or facilitating should be rounded up and sponsored by Red Bull to do a roided up version of the Pamplona Bull Run. The bulls having been fed a diet of roids testosterone at maximum dose adrenaline taurine and amphetamine for a few days before hand. That might help solve the issue.
What a drama queen.. you finished 5th... (4th with the disqualification).
Is she gonna accuse everyone in front of her of doping?... imagine the carnage when she finished 29th in Osaka and 41st in Beijing...
Yes she's a gold medalist but sh'e not Usain Bolt... not gonna win everytime....
I'm sorry, but that athletes complaints about Savinova and other runners just came across as childish and bitter. Have some class, don't throw accusations around if you could have improved on your technique
The sportsmen want to destroy the "integrity" of sports by doping, the regulators want to destroy the "integrity" of sports by not giving a fuck and the audience wants to do the same by not caring how their country gets medals, just that it does....
So who the fuck in this gloryshit of a world Wants that integrity...John Oliver??
Also "What's the point" should be the tagline of Olympics...
Stupid. Unless youre doing bodybuilding testosterone doesn't help you with sports like running or cycling. Complete bs. People who think that ephedrine or testosterone help don't understand drugs and never have taken them.
Belive me steroids and adrenaline increasing drugs don't really help. A faster runner will still be faster than a slower one on dope all the time doping doesn't make you faster or perform better
You gotta be careful with the "what are we all doing here" arguement.
Cause really we are all here to increase entropy and dissolve into an empty oblivion of nothingness.
So all the arguments we fabricate as self-important, perspective-limited meat sacks are inherently meaningless.
Are we here to push the limits of physical reality? Then why not dope?
Are we here to be exactly what we are as made by our genetics and the environment? Then why try to improve anything?
Doping should just be legalized. So what if it's dangerous? We let people do dangerous things. So what if some people naturally respond better to drugs? Some people naturally respond better to training. I think this is genuinely the best solution to the problem.
This masive economic ecosystem is the reason why doping is so frequent in top sports events, there are millions on the line that can't be lost! That is why doping is part of the system, it comes natural, although they need to sacrifice a scape goat from time to time, only to fool the plebs into believing that they are clean and everyone plays fairly. The olympics and other sports events are the embodiment of western philosophy, that praises competition and winning above all, and always the same countries win everything, because they have more money than most to juice up their athletes!
I'm not sure what the woman in the end is about? Did she never dope and just train hard everyday seven hours a day? Because if so wouldn't that stand out and give reason to drug test the other runners? Or if not then dope tonwin just like they did. Or cry about it on a TV show. Probably think I'm mean, but she has never done anything personally for me or to me. Also everyone's job isn't what they want or the people they want to deal with, so cry me a river on that one.
To be fair, Armstrong didn't lie in that video. Narcissists are good at using the truth against people. "Where were you last night?!" "I always go to Steve's on the weekend." "So you were at Steve's?" "I already said what I do like literally every weekend, and you know that, when have I not?!" No lying needed to not say the truth.
I think Olympics would be way more entertaining and way more significant if countries were allowed to (safely) engineer the athletes. Let the country with most advanced science and medicine win! Yet, again, I don't give three shits about sports and the Olympics.
I wish this had actually had an effect, but considering Russia was banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics for doping, and then had athletes that competed under the Olympic flag that were ALSO busted for doping...
People take aderal to enhance their ability to be productive at work, and move up the chain of command. In the end, it is hard on the organs but at the time people some how justify it. just like body builders who take steroids, their hearts pay the price. Peolple want to be a gold medal winner for the glory, money, fame, competitivness etc...... IT IS IN OUR NATURE TO DESIRE TO BE THE BEST. The olympics is a nice dream where we accept who wins with smile and humility. It is not about who is best. It is about countries coming together in a single opportunity to watch our countrymen do their best no matter what.
The guy who took the car in the 1904 marathon had already given up so not really an example of cheating. The 1904 Olympic marathon is actually a fascinating story. Here's a very good video on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4AhABManTw
