Drugs.

The Russians, East Germans and other eastern European countries began using drugs regularly in track around the mid-60's.

The theretofore obscure Chinese women's track team -- called "Ma's Army" -- used them in the 90's to set all the track distance records by obscure athletes, sometimes in obscure meets in China.

The corrupt 23-year old 10,000 meter record by Wang Junxia was smashed by 14 seconds today by Ethiopia's Almaz Ayana, in an amazing race that saw two Ethiopians and two Kenyans run four of the five fastest times ever run in the event and many other runners set national records.

Who knows, maybe those two distance running countries have been juicing for decades, too. The Jamaican sprinters almost certainly have for at least the past 10 years.

And while we're at it, let's toss out that Russian druggie swimmer who was mysteriously reinstated right before her first event.

They surely started earlier than that. Larry Scott admitted that all competitive bodybuilders were using anabolic steroids by 1960. Every US weightlifter was prescribed Dianabol in preparation for the 1960 Olympics in Rome. A top secret 39-page Soviet doping report entitled “Anabolic Steroids and Sport Capacity” published by the State Institute of Physical Culture in Moscow in July 1972 was released publicly in 2003 by former chair of the department of sport biochemistry at the State University of Physical Education and Sport in Kyiv Michael Kalinski. It mentioned systematic steroid use as far back as the 1952 games in Helskinki.
