" The question is 'would I dope in the Olympics if I were promised that I would win a gold medal, but lose my life in a few years?' My answer is no, I would not risk my life just to win a gold medal. Besides, if I were to win a gold medal, I would want myself to win it not doping. If I were caught doping I would be stripped of my medal, why would I want to take that kind of risk? I would want to win it on my own, therefore I know if I am really good enough.

Also, if i were caught, everyone would know about it, and I don't want everyone to know, its embarrassing. . I would be in news reports, talk shows, newspapers, and even more! i would rather keep my life the way it is, no drugs."
