Though I guess you gotta balance that against harms especially if we are talking about a coach or manager making decisions about what happens with the athletes on his team.


There's also hard cases, I understand.

I don't know the rules on banned substances... Retrospectively, I mean. There's the time it takes for a cycle or a dosing reigime to clear from the body so it isn't detectable in tests, anymore. Then there's the possibility of getting people cycles of things early enough in their development so as for it to not be detectble around the time of competition.

E.g., growth hormone for basketballers during early adolescence to boost the growth spurt before college.

Most Olympic Sports (at least) there are quite a lot of structures... You need to train the sport for mnay years. Seasons... Competitions through the seasons... You test the elite ones (particularly) and you can detect whether some thing you have reason to care about starts to alter significantly for that athlete...

It's becoming harder... It's becoming safer...


I went to a talk that was really cool. This chick to developed a bioloical assay to detect something to do with synthetically produces testosterone. so it could be employed by olypic testing committees or by horseracing testing committees and so on...

But in the roll-out (you know, for the start-up) she had to go visit the chemistry people who already had contracts for a bunch of drug testing things... Treading on their toes potentially, you see. Any money that goes her way is an opportunity cost for them with respect to diverting it their way, you see...

And there's a bunch of money in dem horses yup yup yup.
