Olympic Drug Testing

Almost 11,000 athletes are competing in this year's Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games.

These athletes themselves are the staunchest supporters of drug testing, to exclude the tiny handful of cheaters who use drugs to enhance their abilities.

According to the JAMA, this year's games will be monitored by the latest high tech equipment.

They hope to seek out any athlete who uses stimulants, narcotics, diuretics, steroids, alcohol, marijuana or local anesthetics to perform better.

Good luck to those who stay clean.
