In my scorebook that puts Maryam Jamal of Bahrain atop the medal stand along with Ethiopia's Abeba Aregawi and Shannon Rowbury of the United States. And as an added bonus, the 6th and 8th place finishers in that race have been disqualified already for doping.
It's increasingly clear that the IAAF, track and field's ruling body, is protecting drug taking athletes. I believe the IOC is just as culpable. They fear the whole Olympic movement would fall apart if the truth came out. Doping is rampant in endurance sports and that includes swimming and cycling. Yet the most doped game in the world, American professional football, gets a free pass.
Drug testing doesn't work. The athletes with the best doctors win. If men and women want to risk their future health by using steroids, EPO and human growth hormones, let them. The charade has to end.
