- sorry: both finalists I meant to say - always both get tested on illegal substances (ask Mariano Puerta, for instance -
), so it would be discovered right after the finals. It would sound reasonable to me in such a case - i.e., the winner appears to be doped - to grant the runner-up the trophy, points, etc., but I actually don't know what's the 'official' stance of the PTB in such cases, as one should conclude that that doper indeed got to that final being doped, i.e., having had an illegal advantage against ALL
his previous opponents in that tournament as well!
Has this ever happened, btw?
