Should we have an IQ test for our athletes to see if they can grasp the banned list ?

Make compulsory an educational course on doping for all athletes wishing to compete at international level.

It's quite shocking that the article chooses to focus on the appeals panel, and not the infinitely more frightening finding that some Indians are drugging children.

And will any education course make it all make sense,of related compounds, specified substances and many other of the hundred pages of the rules.
Providing some info is not enough.If it was an employment situation then the employers would have to demonstrate that the employees understood and were regulaily checked that they understood all the rules that they weere rquired to know.
It may be that any non sport court deem this as a reasonable test.

The English(plastic)tennis player got of a nandrolone positive because it was the employee of his federation who provided the contaminated supplement.

However should the uneducated,sub literate be held to the same standards ??

All societies drug their kids.
Thousands of kids in the UK take part in sport drugged up on WADA banned products.
What education should their parents have to have ?

I have to say I do have more sympathy with dopers like these from poorer countries, as opposed to e.g. the Americans.
