Surely this is a joke. Just read that the only medal ever won by Ireland in the Olympics was a silver at Athens in the show jumping. It now looks as if the rider will be disqualified and lose his medal cos the horse was tested positive for two banned substances....

Why is it a joke ? the horse tested positive, and presumably would not have been able to jump as well as it did if it had not been doped.

Or are you suggesting the rider would have won a medal without the use of the horse ?

I thought it was OK for horses to eat grass?

What about that chick in the swimming? Michelle Smith. She was a horse too or doped or something.

There was a Canadian rider that got nailed for being doped in one of the Olympic trials, for Atlanta I think. They cottoned onto him when he entered the ring astride the horse backwards. :uhoh:
