If the writer’s intention was to focus on Jamaica’s ‘drug problem’ he has certainly done so but i fear there are a lot of hyped comments and scenarios written in his report. Jamaica’s so called ‘drug problem’ cannot be taken into isolation – it is a much bigger problem than we believe and NO government is going to 1. put enough resources into the organizations 2. find ‘staff not tainted ‘ to work in the organizations or 3. deny the fact that they love and crave the publicity and accolades afforded the country from exploits in Track N filed- so the best thing is to deny the problem exist- everybody does that…EVERYBODY.
Track n field is global of which we are a major player. It is the human thing to want to create suspicion and rumor because we happen to have the best male and female sprint champions. This article is trying to do just that.
JADCO, WADA and all the others have a problem. I still maintain that the recent discoveries and outing of athletes tainted with drugs by the various national drug associations are nothing but an attempt to show the world that look we are working hard at cleaning up the sport and your tax money is not wasted. They would be better served to clean up their associations from the INSIDE ,starting from WADA, which apparently seems almost impossible to do. The evil that men do are done with such good intentions.
