The text mistakenly mentions the 1988 Winter Olympics location [Canada] instead of the Summer Olympics location [Seoul, South Korea][edit]

Section: "Use of performance enhancing drugs"; 2nd paragraph; 2nd sentence:


"The most publicized doping-related disqualification was in 1988 the Canadian Olympics where the Canadian sprinter, Ben Johnson (who won the 100-metre dash) was positive for stanozolol."


Ben Johnson was disqualified in the 100-metre dash at the 1988 SUMMER Olympics in Seoul, South Korea (and NOT at the 1988 Winter Olympics held earlier that same year in Calgary, Alberta, Canada).


The most publicized doping-related disqualification was AT THE 1988 SEOUL Olympics where the Canadian sprinter, Ben Johnson (who won the 100-metre dash) TESTED positive for stanozolol.

French translation[edit]

What is the reason for having a French translation in the first sentence of the article? Seems like an odd use of very high value article real estate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:54, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
