In some sports cheating is a fact of life. Baseball? Pitchers have always cheated, doing so well before Gaylord Perry. Bats? Every year corked bats are discovered. Football? The amount of Mueller Stickum used by Lester Hayes was egregious, but hardly new and not illegal when he used it. But it is illegally used today and that stuff is still marketed to PeeWee and high school football players. Pro football players still play dirty, cheat whenever they can and use drugs all the time. Soccer? Kids everywhere are learning to cheat from their favorite stars. The stars get caught more with instant tape replay, but the kids they influence usually don't. Biking? Say it ain't so, Lance. I guess a lot of those guys are guilty and have been throughout history. Golf? Tiger is certainly no Bobby Jones when it comes to playing by the rules. Golf rules are so complex that it is certainly easy to cheat without even trying to do so. Boxing? The most corrupt sport on earth has zillions of Internet posts about cheating. Curling? The most dumb-ass sport in the Olympics is curling, and it is even possible to cheat in that sport by messing with the broom and doing something called "dumping".
But what about skiers? Doesn't somebody take a winning World Cup athlete's skis away immediately after each race to make sure they conform to the rules (right before the photo ops)? Didn't Bode once become disqualified because his sponsor accidently made him a new boot with a sole discovered to be something like 0.2mm too high (he needed a new boot for his then-swollen foot)? So can ski racers cheat on purpose, and if so how do they do it?
