‘McGwire was not the first—or the last—high profile athlete to take so-called performance-enhancing drugs. In 1998 alone several significant drug scandals shook the sports world. Irish swimmer Michelle de Bruin, winner of three gold medals in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, was banned from swimming competitions after submitting a suspicious urine sample to drug testers. American shotputter Randy Barnes, an Olympic gold medalist, was banned for life from competition for using the same supplement that McGwire used’
