    London 2012 Olympic Games athletes may benefit from soft UK steroid laws

    Officials of the UK government may be rendered helpless if London 2012 Olympic Games athletes bring anabolic steroids into the country for personal use.

    This is primarily due to the fact that the use of steroids is not a criminal offence in the country and only trafficking of steroids constitutes a criminal offence.

    Australia, Canada, China and Italy all toughened drug importation rules before hosting the Olympics but the Government says there will be no similar legislative change in time for the 2012 Games.

    However, the Government says it is serious about stamping out the abuse of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs and will submit a formal application to the World Anti-Doping Agency that recommends athletes should face at least a four-year ban, or life, for serious drug offences.
    “We are making a clear pitch for tougher sentences and urging the need for a universal sentencing policy,” said Hugh Robertson, the Olympics minister. “We would like to see at least four years, if not rather longer than that.”
