you're supposed to blame the horse

Doping scandal hits Olympic showjumping (at RTE News from Ireland).

Now the horses are testing positive for banned substances. Interestingly the substances was capsaicin, which is what makes chili peppers hot. Sounds like you'd have a case to argue: "But he loves jalapenos!"

A second part of the controversy is one of the winning riders has tested positive for cocaine over the years but says it was for personal enjoyment and not performance enhancement.

Grand Jumper threw down another habanero, whinnying with the burn. The two fillies in the stall laughed as his eyes bugged out and his ears twitched. Britta, his rider, shorted up a fresh line of blow off of Francois's riding crop. Another typical night at the Olympics.

You just can't make this stuff up.
