    I'm surprised this isn't about the 1904 marathon, with rat poison, egg yolk, 1 water source, and someone who was literally napping finishing 4th.

      I don't know, the 1988 100m men's final was pretty filthy, 5 of the 8 served bans during their career

        Turkey and Bahrain winning anything is a red flag.

              God I love SB Nation. Literally all the series are amazing so I gave this series a chance...watched several videos in a row and I just...can't. I don't know what it is. Anybody who loves it please help me gain a perspective, I want to like it :\

                They should just strip the bronze medalist of her medal, disqualify everyone else, and declare that "the race was never held".

                    I don't understand, you can get busted for drugs in 2014 and it reverses your 2012 victory?

                              What about 88 Men's 100m Final? I'm clearly ashamed as a Turk from the fact that Bulut and Alptekin had made such fraud btw...

                                          That's funny, I've got a Jon Bois video that's saying the 1904 Marathon was the worst Olympic race.

Did the testing committee have preserved urine samples from the race? If not, how could they prove that they were doping during the time of the race? I get the impression that the women tested positive for doping at some arbitrary future point and then they had their results retroactively rescinded. If thats the case, how could they prove that they were on PEDs during the race? Someone please explain!
