    I suspect many people will just think "that's one set of boxers our boxers won't have to beat then."

    Didn't want to start a new thread...the front page article about the weight lifting mess raises a question..could the sport of weight lifting be dropped from the Olympics if things are so bad? I went to college with a weight lifter and thrower who came fairly close to making the Olympic team in both sports and he tells me drug use was rampant in both sports then and still is today (in weightlifting).

    Yes. I believe the IOC has hinted at as much in the past, this latest report may bring that discussion back up.

    I think few would miss weight lifting.....

    The glory days of Olympic weight lifting was in 1972....when drugs were chewed like candy....
