Sadly, the 'recreational' ones are easily available to the young and wealthy.If performance is a guide to detecting use, amazed that Marat Safin has tested clear for all these years.
Hi Rob. Not sure if cocaine could ever be listed as a cause of good, bad or erratic results. Mats Wilander allegedly had it in his sweatbands, Ben Cousins (elite AFL footballer) used to go crazy on it on weekends and Tom Boonen the cyclist has just gone again for it, and then of course there's Kieran Fallon. Plus Mark Bosnich and Adrian Mutu at Chelsea years ago. I doubt it made one iota of difference to their performance, they were just all loaded with cash and had the lifestyle that exposed them to such problems. Lesser mortals probably would have at least as many failed tests, just there's little point of testing further down the sporting chain...
Thanks for your comments.
