Default Hundreds of world records to be removed from the record books

Hundreds of world records are set to be scrapped and the holders stripped of the titles after a new decision to only allow records that have been set by athletes who have been drug tested at least 5 times in the months before, and then immediately after and the samples being kept in storage.

This means that, among others, Paula Radcliffe's marathon record will go as will Jonathan Edwards Triple Jump record , Many admittedly suspicious results by Eastern European athletes and some by subsequently banned US athletes will also go.

Why Boys Will Keep Winning Girls' Sports Trophies
And here (link above) is another - and stronger - reason why world records will be deposed. Is it only in America can a solid muscly boy compete as a girl in college sports because he claims (!) to identify as female? At the moment, maybe; but can we expect other countries to follow suit? Hopefully, not!
