We all deserve a level playing field, clear and consistent rules, and a commitment to integrity. Beat me if you’re more talented. Beat me if you train harder. Beat me if you prepare smarter. Beat me if you eat better. All I ask is that you beat me at the same game, with the same set of rules.
Testing is an expense and a luxury that much of our sport is not designed to afford. With or without testing, all we really have as athletes and as a sport is our integrity. Every one of us who makes a public commitment to clean sport puts our integrity on the line and in the hands of any agency that might have the opportunity to test us some day. To do any more or any less is not an option for all of us who cherish fair play and a true sporting test every time we toe the line.
