this is very pleasing, as pissed as many of us are at the cheaters and those in USATF that cover for them.
one thing that makes me apprehensive, though, is the following idea mentioned in the article:
"Stripped to its essence, the program calls for athletes to volunteer for all manner of inspection, including samples of urine, blood, hair, nails, etc…Furthermore, the findings from the tests would establish the baseline for an athlete's personal biochemistry."
There seems to be some potential for abuse, with the advent of gene doping and cloning. Who's to say crooked labs won't take the genetic make-up from the samples of the best athletes in the world and sell them, giving to experimentation with the creation of physically superior human beings? I'm no scientist, but isn't this a possible outcome?
