Felix and Bill, I would add this:
It was truly heartening to see Germany’s anti-doping agency not only down in the dungeon taking samples but in full view at the Euro champs last year in Berlin … stands, family packs, helpful advisers etc at hand in the pool and around it.
It is heartening to see new names and young folk breaking through in Germany and I for one, encourage the current crew to keep doing what they are doing: trying to turn the ship around in a culture of fair play and hard work … and doing so under unhelpful conditions at home, including a lack of any serious funding for programs when compared to what can be found elsewhere in the world among those German swimmers must compete against.
There is a new start underway in Germany and it comes with a will to keep it clean and compete fairly. Good for them.
