Not sure if this is OT or not, it is it please feel free to move it mods.
After the fun and games of recent weeks (Rodgers, JTL) and years (Armstrong, Contador, etc.) with doping in cycling it occurred to me that, bar athletics, we virtually never hear about doping in other sports. Does this mean that there doping doesn’t happen in top level competition elsewhere? Or that it does and we just don’t hear about it? Are we to believe that top level triathlon (a fiercely competitive endurance sport) is free of EPO? That international rugby (have you seen how big a lot of the guys are now?) is free of steroids? Or that football (the richest sport in the world with potential to earn millions on the back of 1 great year) is clean as a whistle?
My instinct is that doping is as rife, if not more so, in all of these along with a whole host of other sports. I suspect that we don’t hear about it because they either don’t catch then due to lack of testing or they don’t tell us when they are caught.
Am I alone in this belief or is this shared?
