    Does Viagra gives athletes an advantage?

    http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/11/23/sports/viagra.php?WT.mc_id=glob_mrktg_lead&WT.mc_ev=click

    ...The Marywood study does not involve the bedroom, but the playing field. It is being financed by the World Anti-Doping Agency, which is investigating whether the diamond-shaped blue pills create an unfair competitive advantage in dilating an athlete's blood vessels and unduly increasing oxygen-carrying capacity. If so, the agency could ban the drug. At this point, there is no evidence of widespread use of Viagra by elite athletes, Tygart said. Yet, because the drug is not prohibited and thus not screened with any routine urgency, there is no way to know precisely how popular it is.
    "My guess is, it's a pretty easy decision to make," Rundell said. "It's a compound that's pretty easily measured. And it clearly provides an unfair advantage, at least at altitude."

    It's well known that it helps the elusive running back.
    They get the tripod effect and the blood running to their unit keeps their mind less conscious of the pain being inflicted on them.
    Viagra up.

    Not to mention it gives pole vaulters that little extra "lift".
    Might be great at picnics for those grueling "three legged races", as well!
