We've seen enough of that from the media. From athletes the people really does make a difference I want ask each one of you if you could make one change if you -- an IOC for the day what would be honest with you just I just. I know you got something -- I mean what thing I would change is because I think the only bigs always need the Olympic champion in the Olympic Games so I would automatically. The winner. Past Olympics gets to automatically come to the next Olympics. Just so you always have -- headlines. And it's -- Olympic champion. Completed again. That's one thing which. I see smiled at that you look like you or I don't know if you're in disbelief alive -- I I would've never thought of that analysts is quite interesting I wonder if it wind. Affect the champion from having played for the next four years like when it's. -- -- living -- little lazy kind of preparing to six knowing that they're -- already be on the Olympic team. Best for Americans but what about. If you are not American also so we have all the countries here so you have you know the mayor didn't have to do through the American trials but if he makes it. He's in just to go right. We're kind of -- I feel like I'm not gonna comes out I'm not gonna thumbs up I can't tell so let's see what can top that Amy. -- Years I. Went there. That. Four years.

Saying it's it's it's just. -- -- It. Sammy was -- -- because if we -- to -- everything most. -- -- me you know anything about -- I'm really for the across the board. Drug test. It's horrible to watch track and field event and see this wonderful athlete out there when in on jitters. Surprise win -- to oranges in the -- is questioning. You know to do around the steroids or something like that and so I really late that. If they were more thorough with this and did every few months because. You don't want to see someone like Mo get beaten by anyone that where you're just questioning whether it's terrorism so. Especially the track and field events in the swimming events because it comes down milliseconds. And you know -- with steroids can give you know the second difference now. Dozens ping pong in badminton maybe it doesn't pertain as much even though they are great sports. Wonderful ping pong players. -- Table tennis player but. You know I've watched. You know five to eight Summer Olympics now and every time you're worried about that one track -- -- swimmer who's this. There are numbers really changed here it or how that happens so. And -- that I think that they need to make sure that the sanctions are across the board equal. So it's always a positive for Wednesday all diuretic. They shouldn't get into your band just like another athlete would get them for that so. I think right now there's a little bit of watching which you washing us -- I don't need a very gray area. And if you're one of those athletes like you look at Jessica Hardy who. Ended up serving a one year ban which ended up being -- two -- -- because she took something in -- he protein -- she had no idea was there. And then you have someone else like Hope Solo took something that is strictly on. The forbidden list but get Jessica gets yanked and hope -- as a warning it's yeah it's kind of -- and I don't like that. Right great -- but we one's on you for Indians vote who's. Going. And it. Well I not to go into it but it would have been nice. This. -- Do the dollar tonight and tonight. -- In Phoenix.
