I am so sick and tired of these drug issues in sports.

The Hungarian gold medalist in the men's discus was stripped of his title Tuesday for allegedly tampering with a drug test, a Hungarian team spokesman said.

Robert Fazekas, who won the discus on Monday night with an Olympic record throw of 232 feet, 8 inches, was disqualified by the International Olympic Committee executive board, team spokesman Deszo Vad said.

He is the second athlete in two days to lose a gold medal for doping. Russian shot putter Irina Korzhanenko's gold was recalled Monday after she tested positive for steroids.

I have no sympathy for these people. I am still waiting for the moment they announce Marion Jones has been taking drugs. This really tarnishes sport.

I understand the pressure on these athletes to do their best, but they really aren't if they are using drugs.
