It’s the winning that counts not the taking part


An article in the paper today was discussing the increased risk that paralympians will dope to win.  I have to say some of the techniques discussed were gruesome. If you want to know how breaking your toe or sitting on a spike can improve your performance check out today’s Guardian. If that is what it takes guys then you are welcome to it.
 This followed on from Oscar Pistorius’ noisy complaints about the outcome of the 200m and Jody Cundy turning the air blue in the velodrome.
As we increasingly recognise paralympians as elite athletes I guess we should not be surprised that they start behaving like elite athletes.
