    If an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs they should get there records taking away and have big punishments. Athletes should get there records stripped from them because taking steroids is cheating. They should not still be called the best after taking those drugs. Athletes that use these drugs should get a punishment. I think they should either get there records taken away, medals taken away, charges, suspension, or kicked off the team. Marion Jones was the first woman to win five medals at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. The track superstar eventually tested positive for performance enhancing drugs but was later cleared by a follow up test. In 2007, she admitted to using banned substances and returned her Olympic medals.  She was guilty to federal charges, and then was sentenced to six months in prison and two years of probation. I was surprised that she was taking steroids because I watched a couple of videos of her in the same Olympics and she looked natural.
