Doping authorities take urine and blood samples and keep them on file for 8 years. How are these samples secured for that period of time? Does chemical degradation or sample decay takes place over 8 years? What will happen to these samples when the 8-year period comes to an end? Are they destroyed? If so, how? Who is responsible for the process of destruction? What makes this actor qualified for such a task?
(We won't know the winners from the Beijing Olympics until 2016. Until then we are faced with the "limitless postponement" characteristic of Deleuze's control society.)
Is it possible that before the first 8-year period is over the period is extended in fashion analogous to what we have seen with the Copyright Term Extension Act in the United States? Will WADA someday own a right to these samples in perpetuity? Forensic examination is currently solving crimes that took place 30 years ago; will we see a gold medal from today overturned 30 years in the future due to a forensically-detected doping violation? And will the truth of that discovery be greater than the truth of the race victory today?
