Olympic Cheats

As was probably unavoidable, in the week or so leading up to the olympics there were stories of drug cheats being found out and banned.

What strikes me as somewhat odd is that the news shows managed to get clips of Australian athletes condemning these drug cheats.

Australian athletes, who only have the help of their own efforts and a multi-million dollar government funded high tech research agency, to win as many gold medals as possible to reinforce nationalistic pride. In what way is that NOT cheating?
