Top athletes on drugs will always beat top athletes off drugs. Are you saying Steiner is that much of a better athlete than Chigishev that he can beat him without ever touching drugs? An example: Sprinter wins the gold medal with 9.70 in the 100, 2nd place is 9.71. Winner gets popped but 2nd place never gets busted and comes from a team that doesn't typically produce top sprinters. I'd argue there is no way he is clean. Some would argue he is absolutely clean even though his time would be otherworldly for a clean runner. It is the same thing in weightlifting in my eyes. People like to look around and say wow there are so many genetic freaks out there. I disagree. There are so many people on drugs out there that would be very very good athletes even without the drugs that the naive get confused. Certainly there are some freaks in the world, but not enough as to where every sport seems to have endless numbers of them at the top levels. Maybe Steiner is a true freak. I kind of wish he is, it would be awesome. He seems like a very lovable character. Unfortunately, it is more likely in today's world that he is simply another athlete that uses steroids.Chris I agree with your point about being suspicious of all powerlifters entering the sport.There will be a real crossroads in sport as a whole within the next century as science continues to take over.
