The USADA desires to learn whether you have ever applied anabolic steroids, EPO, HGH and/or other prohibited substances. This fact may surprise you but the anti-doping organization doesn’t plan yet to stop the investigation connected with Lance Armstrong’s doping case. Thus, the investigation goes on. The USADA plans to investigate every cyclist. Especially suspected steroid users will be investigated.
The USADA wants to apply the best ways in order to catch those that have ever taken prohibited medications. What is the best method to clean cycling of steroid use? The USADA tries to define and utilize the best methods. This anti-doping organization is even ready to compare eradication of doping in cycling with that in South Africa.
The USADA affirms that those that take anabolic steroids and other related products should be punished. Consumers of anabolic steroids and/or other performance-enhancing drugs are demonized as if they were criminals. They are often compared with those who commit violence and other serious crimes. Anabolic steroids are harshly blamed in the society. Thus, the USADA suggests that if steroids and consumers of steroids are blamed, it will be easier to elude doping.
Actually, the USADA asks the International Cycling Association to organize a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The commission will investigate different cases connected with doping. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission will try to determine why certain cyclists have taken anabolic steroids and/or other doping products but avoided detection.
Moreover, the USADA promises that “amnesty” will be provided to those who admit to taking anabolic steroids and/or other prohibited substances, ask for forgiveness, repent and tell everything linked with doping to the anti-doping agency, team doctors, teammates, friends, etc. If a former steroid user says just truth, he will get the full amnesty. So, the USADA hopes to clean cycling entirely.
Travis Tygart, the CEO of the USADA, says that there are some cyclists related to Lance Armstrong that have remained undetectable. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission should identify them.
