Sir Bradley Wiggins: No unfair advantage from drug
sir Bradley wiggins insists he didn't get an "unfair" advantage by using performance enhancing drugs
He seems to think that it was a fair advantage
Sir Bradley Wiggins has insisted he was not trying to gain an "unfair advantage" from being allowed to use a banned steroid before major races.
The Olympic cyclist told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show he took the powerful anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone for allergies and respiratory problems.
Sir Bradley said he sought therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) to "put himself back on a level playing field".
TUEs allow the use of banned substances if athletes have genuine medical need.
or if the team has a crooked doctor who will sign off on it
and the British team seem to be encouraging this kind of behaviour
Sir Hugh Robertson, vice-chairman of the British Olympic Association, told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek: "Whatever you think about whether he should have been allowed to do this, the fact is the anti-doping rules at the time allowed him to do so.
"There was a set of rules in place with which he complied entirely."
The official line from both the cyclist and the british team seems to be, "so what if he was using performance enhancing drugs and got an advantage from it, what he did was within the rules"
