Any form of cheating should have the same result, not only drugs.
But what if an athlete doesn't realise they have included something that is banned in their diet, and totally did not intend to do it? Depends how this is determined. The 15 year old Chinese swimmer is amazing, and there's no proof yet that she took any banned substance is there?
Not only that, past cheats should have their medals revoked. I am thinking of Waldemar Cierpinski, the East German marathon cheater.
absolutely. one strike!
I think it should be an option but not an automatic thing. It should depend on what you have taken. Certain cold remedies contain banned substances and could be taken inadvertently while other practices are more definite cheating
