Open Mic: Summer Olympics Tainted?

Fletcher WhiteleyContributor INovember 5, 2016

The Beijing Olympics will go down as the biggest of all time. You had an extraordinary opening, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, and the "Redeem Team."

With all of these stories, however, the main topic is performance enhancing drugs. Unfortunately, we live in a time when most accomplishments are tainted or at least someone attempted to taint them.

At whom should we point the finger? Look in the mirror.

I know I have accused people many of times of cheating. Do you think I am saying that any of these great performances are the result of cheating? Nothing has been proven yet.

We knew that Phelps and Bolt were the best at their sports, so we should not accuse any of these people for us knowing that they would win the biggest races of their lives.

Where can I comment?
