Drugs, Lies and Finishing Tape
As the Commonwealth
Games gets underway in Auckland, a special edition of On the Line reports on the dark shadow hanging over international athletics.
One of Britain's leading athletes of the 80s reckons 95 per cent of his fellow competitors took banned drugs and claims athletics' administrators knew perfectly well what was going on. Evidence collected from the United States, Canada, Britain and East Germany points to a long running conspiracy of silence on the problem.
Winning is all that matters in modem athletics and, despite' widespread testing, the race against drugs could well be a losing one.
