Just a thought.
I've wondered the same thing! *I guess there's a lot of denial going on in their minds...denying that they did anything wrong (cheating), denying that they're endangering their own bodies, denying that they may not be the best even if they "win," denying responsibility...deny, deny, deny! *I guess if they do it enough, they start to believe it's just another avenue to achieving their dreams, but somehow I can't believe the accomplishments taste as sweet as those achieved by purer methods.

No, I imagine you were not laughing at all. Not meaning to diminish your pain...but it's a pretty funny image...the "imaginary luge" and all!
