I happen to know an olympic medal winner and the doping was explained to me as follows:-
Most people lets say have a particular hormone (testosterone/nandralone etc) blood count of eg 4 units. There are some freaks however that naturally have a blood count of 10 units. In order to not exclude these people from competing (because they would fail a test if the limit was set to 4 units) the limit is set to 10 units. This means that most normal people can artificially take substances in controlled amounts, ie take 6 units, thereby increasing their blood levels from 4 units to 10, and still pass a WADA test!! This is normal practice for most athletes/sportsman. Testing doesn't necessarily catch all those who are guilty, just those who miscalculated and took too much!!
