American cyclist Tyler Hamilton is facing the loss of his Olympic gold medal in the cycling time trial because two separate blood tests suggested that he might be guilty of "blood doping." Hamilton, who has up to now enjoyed a squeaky-clean image, denies the charge.

NOW I'M HELPING ROSS, ACTUALLY. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT BLOOD DOPING HAS IN FACT A LOWER IMPACT ON SWIMMING BECAUSE THIS SPORT THOUGH VERY AEROBIC, DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO VENTILATE YOUR LUNGS PROPERLY. BACKSTROKE IS ALSO AFFECTED, TO SOME DEGREE. IF ANYTHING, COUNT THE TIME SPENT UNDERWATER DURING THE TURN PHASE.IN GENERAL, THE MORE YOU TRY TO BREATHE, THE LESS EFFICIENT YOU GET, SO YOU WIN POWER BUT IN THE SAME TIME YOU DROP ON EFFICIENCY. TO GAIN ANYTHING FROM THE EXTRA OXYGEN-CARRYING CAPACITY OF THE BLOOD, YOU NEED TO BREATHE MORE AIR INTO YOUR LUNGS, AND THAT CAN BE A PROBLEM. THERE MIGHT NOT BE ANY INCENTIVE FOR SWIMMERS TO GET RIDICULOUSLY HIGH HEMATOCRIT EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD PROBABLY GET AWAY WITH IT.
