    China is responding to doping accusations by American swimming coaches at the London Olympics. They say the accusations are unfair, and an extreme bias on the part of Americans who are sore at losing. China now leads in gold medals as of this date. They also respond that they never made the same accusations of Phelps when he swam to 8 golds at the Peking Olympics in 2008. Are the accusations fair or not?

    How can it be considered fair when the swimming coach as good as accused the Chinese swimmer of cheating. Given that the first five finishers in every event are tested for performance enhancing drugs he should have kept his trap shut rather than airing his non-founded suspicions to the world's media. If he wanted to lodge a complaint he should have gone through the appropriate channels. Is it any surprise that he's being called a sore loser by the Chinese. I would say he has exhibited an extreme example of not only poor judgement, but poor sportsmanship too.

    Athlete Talks About Using Performance-enhancing Drugs
    August 19, 2016 — Adam Gusky never contemplated using performance-enhancing drugs, or PEDs, while he was a top high school football player in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 20 years ago — but that changed when he turned semi-pro. "I thought to myself, what can I do to make myself a better player on the field while not affecting myself generally as a person off the field," Gusky said.
