Dopers Gain Long-Term Advantage

In many sports, athletes caught doping are slapped with suspensions, presumably to both penalize them and allow time for the effects of the drugs to wear off. However, new research suggests that these athletes could still be benefitting from past use of performance-e nhancing drugs long after they have been allowed to return to competition.
