It's only an advantage if other competitors aren't doing it. You're assuming the "defeated athletes" are clean. It could be that Vasiloiu had a better pharmacist, or it could be that she was really better, or it could be that other runners were clean. That's the problem with pervasive doping--there's no way to know.

You are exactly right. What a problem? We take two stances on this:

1. The 'see no evil stance'. No other runners tested positive, or have been implicated in a 'nonanalytic positive'. Thus we assume the other runners were clean.

2. The 'guilt by association' stance. To be able to achieve at this level all athletes must be doping and therefore either her chemist was better, (or in the nuclear arms race of doping) she won when everyone's dope stockpile canceled each other out.

This is a variant on the prisoner's dilemma...everyone would be better if no one doped, however if one person dopes, then everyone must dope.

Life there are always several days cherish most, But my a few good friends unforgetable, From drizzle, Hold the spring to snow violently winter, Although cannot always together, But often in the heart remembers.

which are another example of what some people call the "lexicalist hypothesis", a view that has occasionally -- but erroneously -- been inferred from some previous writings of mine. Since my linguistic creativity is infinite, I can categorically state that there aren't templates of any sort.
