SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20:  Packages of "No-Doz" caffeine tablets are shown May 20, 2005 in Sydney Australia. Several high-profile athletes in Australia have admitted taking the tablets to boost performance after the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) removed them from the banned list at the start of last year. The director-general of WADA David Howman said that taking caffeine tablets to boost performance is "bordering on cheating" even though the use of the pills is no longer banned.
