First of all, in 2011, 29% of the respondents (anonymous, of course) of a survey at the World Track & Field Championships admitted to having doped in the previous year. The WADA returns a positive test about 2% of the time. Testing is way behind the cheating.

Galen Rupp was tested 19 times in the first six months of 2013. But, more importantly, the USADA has the authority to test athletes in Bridge, Bowling and Cheerleading. Cheerleaders and Bowlers we could debate (and I'd say yes), but are people who play cards really athletes? And does doping give them any sort of competitive edge?
