Clara Hughes after 21 years of complete silence have finally confess that during her carreer she was taking substances that improve her performance. A fews months after the cycling's world championships in Sicily she received a call from, Canada's national team director, Pierre Hutsebaut. He announce to her that she has been tested positive for the stimulant ephedrine. She denied it and sais that before the test she leaves her bottle unattended and that someone could put ephedrine in it. She had many problem like alcoholic father, eating desorder and depression. The sport was a refuge from these things.
I know that she passed over horrible things but winning by cheating should not be satisfying. There are many other solutions. She haved the talent to be on the national team. The last step that missed was work and perseverance. When you win you are so happy because you put so many times and effort for it. Clara Hughes just haved all of this happiness not because she deserves it but because she cheat. I understand that she needed to have something good happened to her after all of the steps she passes through but it wasn’t the right thing to do.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/olympian-clara-hughes-reveals-doping-infraction-1.3215617
