Paris Olympic: Potential Drug Cheats Won’t Sleep Easy  –Coe Warns

The president of World Athletics Sebastian Coe has warned athletes who have come with the mindset to cheat their way to glory in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games that they should not be sleeping easily due to technological advancements in anti-doping.

He made this known in a chat with The Telegraph newspaper, where he said that technological advances that have been made will certainly make it easy for the Athletics Integrity Unit to notice drug cheats, but noted that some athletes were unbothered by the move..

“The honest answer to that is no, sadly. They will be cleaner, I hope, than the previous Games… But I have to be realistic about it.

“I think it is a much safer landscape than it used to be; there are things we’re doing that we didn’t do before, because of technology.

“But human nature tells me there will always be a few who, even with the right education programmes and tough deterrents, are going to make that risk/reward decision and step outside the moral boundaries.”

“Technology is improving. Things that we are now able to test for — if you are watching championships now you will see us reassigning medals from six or seven years ago.

“No athlete who thinks they’ve got away with it on one occasion can sleep easily, because we have the systems to go back and test things we may not even know at this moment.”
