Sky News gives us a story about a new delivery system for the dope: tattoos.
Research in Germany has shown that delivering DNA vaccines via tattoo was 16 times more effective than injecting through the muscles or veins as the vibrating tattoo needle prepares the body's immune system and increases the body's response to the drug.
Former Australian Institute of Sport researcher Robin Parisotto said a handful of athletes
He said: "With some of these things the technology is so new, the concept so bizarre, that there would only be a handful of well tapped-in athletes using it - but they will be experimenting at the Beijing Olympics because it is the ultimate.
The author of 'Blood Sports: The inside dope on drugs in sport' said cheating athletes are also combining the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra with doses of nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. Both drugs increase the flow of oxygen in the blood stream and therefore boost sporting performance.
So if Viagra can be delivered via tattoo, where does that one go? What's up with Kim Maher above? Or Bulgaria's Ivet Lalova to the left?
