Drug cheats always blame others, everyone is responsible to what they take, I am sick of the poor excuses!

Slightly radical but I would get rid of strict liability and introduce an intent rule. Simply did the athlete intend to cheat or not. I do think that many cases the “doping” is unintentional.
For the proven cheats I would take away all their times, records and make them pay back some of their money gained by cheating.
I actually optimistic about swimming most of the major nations have good doping programmes its just a case of improving the developing nations and education of the athletes.
