Never stopped bloody cheering!

There was controversy in the Olympic pool in Beijing today, when, after US paddler Michael Phelps' disputed victory in the 100m Butterfly final, the first swimming drugs scandal of the 2008 Games surfaced.

Phelps won, but afterwards, eighty-four members of the crowd tested positive for the banned substance Hypoadrenalin, which enhances the ability to cheer.

The fans have never stopped cheering at the meet, not even at the start of races, and some have even been witnessed cheering on their way home after racing has finished. One man was arrested for cheering whilst he was asleep.

It's the first time supporters at sports events have been the subjects of drug testing, but the Chinese authorities are intent on making a clear statement about drugs in sport.

Head of the Chinese Herbal Medicine and Drug Testing Committee, Xia Say Noh said:

"No drugging taking! Iss incrude fan awso!"
