'This is going to help you out'
Alvin Harrison, a two-time Olympic gold medalist (1996 and 2000) in the 1,600-meter relay, is among the few athletes busted for steroids who seems willing to accept some responsibility for it. Harrison is putting the finishing touches on a book titled "The Observer" that he says will offer a firsthand look inside the Trevor Graham camp and the BALCO scandal."I did admit to doing certain things, but the way [it] happened with me was a little bit different," Harrison told ESPN.com. "I had incurred an injury in 2002, an injury with my hip flexor. I was supposed to go to Victor Conte, and he had supplements, protein shakes and vitamins that we were taking. We signed an agreement that he would furnish us with these supplements and so forth, and we would pretty much promote the name.
