what happened? Why didn't he win?
Didn't you hear? He was disqualified.
How did that happen? He's so talented! I thought he had a great chance of winning a gold medal!
If he didn't have any drug problems, he would have won.
What? What kind of drugs was he using?
He was taking steroids to make him stronger and faster.
I thought that all athletes were supposed to be regularly tested for drugs.
They are. The reason why they didn't disqualify him until after the race is because the results from the text only came back afterwards.
That's so disappointing. I don't know why top athletes would feel the need to take drugs.
I don't think it's right, but I can understand why they might. Imagine how much pressure there would be to win for your country!
Regardless of how much pressure you're under, there's never a good reason to take drugs.
I agree. Hopefully with the new regulations, fewer athletes will try to cheat with drugs.
Let's hope so.
