Good article. Very clear but also very depressing. Difficult to be a Saint and on the podium. I guess there is no Santa Claus

You live in poverty. Take some drugs that could help you make a decent living and maybe even lift one to be able to live the life of luxury. The downside, there is a 1 - 2% chance you are caught and lose everything and have to return to the life you were attempting to escape. Thus drugs are now a permanent part of professional sports. Especially when we see what amateurs are doing to capture just "glory".
