RIO DE JANEIRO -- Australias two gold medals on the opening night of swimming competition each had a slightly different gleam.Distance freestyler and Olympic rookie Mack Horton won the 400-meter freestyle Saturday and said he was propelled by self-belief. Later in the evening, the favored womens 400 freestyle relay, led by star sisters Cate and Bronte Campbell, defended the event title and set a world record of 3 minutes, 30.65 seconds.Cate Campbell said the repeat -- even though it came by a greater margin than four years ago -- was harder because of the expectations the quartet carried.But, she added, I think Mack was the real hero.It was more than a kind pat on the back from a more experienced teammate. Horton reeled in early leader James Guy of Great Britain and held off 2012 champion Sun Yang of China in the stretch, but it was his blunt talk about doping before and after the race that set him apart.I guess I wouldnt really feel right if I raced at this stage against someone who has tested positive and didnt bring it up, Horton said of Yang, who served a controversial three-month suspension in 2014 due to a positive test for the stimulant trimetazidine. News of the sanction surfaced months after Yang, a double gold medalist in the 400- and 1,500-meter events in London, served the ban.After Saturday afternoons preliminary heats, Horton said he ignored Yangs attempt to provoke him by splashing him in a training session earlier in the week. I dont have time or respect for drug cheats, Horton said.While straight-up personal tension certainly fueled Hortons remarks, they also tap into more general and long-standing suspicion of doping in Chinas swimming program. Bobby Jenks White Sox Jersey. . Most recently, the World Anti-Doping Agency and FINA, swimmings world governing body, said earlier this year that whistleblowers claims of positive test cover-ups first revealed in The Times of London were being investigated.Beyond that, the overall disarray in international anti-doping jurisprudence -- laid bare by the dysfunctional process that cleared the way for so many Russian athletes (including swimmers) to compete in Rio despite compelling evidence of pervasive state-sponsored doping -- has prompted an increasing number of athletes to question a system that is supposed to protect them.Often the most corrosive aspects of doping is the internal toll it can take on the psyche of the athlete in the next lane who wonders if his opponent has an insurmountable advantage. Horton said he doesnt lack for confidence, but part of his decision to go public was directed back at himself, saying aloud what he needed to execute in the water.That last 25, that last 15, I felt I had concrete blocks on my arms, basically, but then I kind of flashed back to my statement this morning, Horton said. I dont really have a choice to let him beat me. I kind of have to beat him now. So thats what I did.Horton said he thought about the message he wanted to convey, and if a reporter hadnt brought it up, I probably would have slipped it in there somewhere. He said he hopes other athletes speak their minds on the topic.It will add even more electricity to an already charged atmosphere if they do.
