I watched a documentary on television last night about whether athletes who have been banned for drug use should be allowed back into the sport. They cited one particular athlete who "cheated" 10 years ago and yet the Powers that Be in British sports don't want him to participate in the London Olympics.
No one in this world is perfect; everyone makes mistakes. I believe everyone deserves not only a second chance but many second chances.
I hope he is allowed to run as it will be a shame for him to miss out just because of one mistake he's already paid the price for.
