It took three days, but someone finally got nabbed for doping at the 2008 Games. Maria Moreno, a cyclist from Spain, tested positive for EPO. She actually took the test on July 31 and departed for China before the results were made official. Her accreditation was canceled and there are talks of denying her entrance in 2012 should she qualify on the charge of being overly predictable.

I mean, come on … a doped cyclist. What’s next, a fat Sumo wrestler?
