Viagra not on the banned list?

I first heard that high altitude mountain climbers were using Viagra to prevent frostbite.

Now other athletes are using it?

It seems that athletes and coaches are always one step ahead of the drug testing authorities. Athletes have discovered that Viagra might do more than just enhance bedroom performances.

The drug not only increases blood flow to that important part of the body, but also the lungs. WADA is still conducting tests on whether Viagra, or ‘Vitamin V’ as it is known to athletes, enhances performance on the sporting field.

The results of WADA’s research will not be known until next year, so athletes in theory should be able to use the drug without repercussion at the Beijing Olympics.
