I like listening to Josh and believe he a fantastic athlete. I do disagree with his comment that it doesn't matter if the 75th place finisher in the games tests positive for performance enhancing susbtances.

I think it does matter. The person that places 75th had to qualify and if they were using illegal substances they took a spot from someone that was competing legally. I don't think that was the message Josh wanted to send and pretty sure he is against all use of illegal sustances.

This testing it is expensive and I hope the possibility of testing will deter most from using these substances. There will be those few that will try.
