You can’t really describe how difficult it is to deal with. It is any athlete’s worst nightmare to be accused of cheating by taking drugs. It really is very difficult to put into words how it makes you feel.

The cardinal sin in sports, what could really wreck it, is not cheating to win, which has gone on forever, but cheating to lose. That threatens a fundamental aspect of sports’ appeal, which is their spontaneity. If games are fixed, they’re no different from movies; they’re scripted.
