The Audacity of Dope

Well, that was fast.

It only took four days for the first doping scandal of the Olympics to emerge. And — surprise! — it involves cycling. Spanish rider Maria Isabel Moreno failed a test for the blood-boosting hormone EPO, which is linked to numerous doping scandals in the sport.

Moreno apparently never saw that classic Saved by the Bell PSA, “There’s no hope with dope!

An IOC spokeswoman says the organizers are serious about stamping out cheating. I’m willing to give even odds that there will be more drug disqualifications in the games than medals won by Spain. Any takers?
