    not a teacher

    In this context:

    "doping" = the use of performance-enhancing drugs by athletes
    Definition (a) – http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dic...english/doping

    "drama" = a turbulent, emotional situation
    Definition (4) – http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dic.../english/drama

    Justin Gatlin has been banned in the past for offences involving performance enhancing drugs. Because of these bans, there has been some controversy surrounding Gatlin's appearance at the 2016 Olympics.
