'Being Greek, it is very important for me that my country excels in the Olympics, albeit not in the conventional way. So far, we have 15 athletes caught using illegal substances.

- Panos Papadopoulos of Athens, Greece, commenting on the BBC Olympics forum

[At the time of writing, Greece had won one silver in the men's rowing and two bronze medals: women's triple jump and women's Yngling (sailing)]
