It seems to me that there are a lot of methods you can do for passing the
drug test during the main competition (like stop taking *** a month before),
so I think "big BEN" got catched must have some story inside. You all
know Ben Johnson is not a idiot, there must have somebody do not want
him to be the world record holder. So his case must be set up.
Who did it? racist or "jealous"?

Yeah, they also took a drug that wasn't traceable until Seoul. Stenazonol
(sp?) became traceable after the new equipment was brought in.
Big ben had reduced his times just before the Olympics and therefore felt
he needed the boost.
He clearly stated that he knew what he was taking. Initially he was
unsure, but later (2 months after he started doping) he knew what he was
on, maybe not the exact drug name but he knew he was on 'roids.
All of this came out in the hearing on his drug use.

As for it being racist; WHY?
Canada loved him, and he was trained by a Canadian who had nothing to
gain and everything to lose from his being caught.

This is another story that Oliver Stone should cover. The big ben johson
***.

Well, the angle of the trajectory of the degree of penetration of the
needle caused a positive result......

Yeah, O.K.!

I love this racist angle.  Yeah they set up one big black  guy so another
big black guy could win.  Makes a lot of sense to me.

Seriously though, why do you think this - any basis in reality there?

If not, then why post such paranoid rubbish?

I agree with you.There is st. wrong on it.And this is not only such event
(for many others : Diego Maradona , socker player from Argentina).But you
should know there is much money in these events.Have you sometimes asked
yourself why Ben didn't plead himself on the court of law?
The answer could be :Because somebody gave him money(very much money) to
be quiet.
So , this is my opinion.But I am sure (and not only I) that your version
with racist or "jealous" is wrong.
