Rock bottom or just a poor choice?

According to an ESPN.com article, a high jumper was accused of drinking Red Bull and vodka during a professional track and field meet.

This immediately made me think of VH1’s “Behind The Music” where similar incidents meant rock bottom was just around the corner. However, if history (or “Behind The Music”) is any indication, I wouldn’t be shocked if this high jumper crashes and burns in the next year… only to turn his life around and contend for an Olympic medal in London 2012.

… or maybe he just wanted a night off for once and decided it’d be best to drink at a professional meet.

Update: As I usually re-read my posts, I once again got to thinking… if you’re an elite athlete, why would you potentially throw it all away with one thoughtless move? It’s all about the decisions we make.
