But does guilt by association live up to our standards of reasonable doubt?

First of all this is not a legal proceeding, so it would be a mistake to have the same standards apply. This is a competition, freely entered into by each athlete. If they don't like the rules, they can stay home. I do think that the ruling bodies of these sports need to work a lot closer with the athletes to ensure that they don't take things by accident. Meanwhile, though, if I am an athlete, I make 100% sure that I know exactly what anything and everything I put into my body contains, and I make 100% sure that nothing I take is on the banned substance list.
