2012 Olympic Games: 5 Ways Athletes Dope [SLIDESHOW]

With the Olympics in full swing, the International Olympics Committee is conducting drug tests on athletes to ensure a level playing field. Since the start of the Olympic "period," beginning on July 16, the IOC has conducted more than 1000 drug tests - the majority of which were urine tests, though almost 300 competitors underwent a blood test.

IOC President Jacques Rogge told Reuters that the testing has been a success, with more than 100 athletes being disqualified due to doping. Hysen Pulaku, an Albanian weightlifter was the first to be disqualified after testing positive for an anabolic steroid.
