If I'm honest, I highly doubt he used PEDs for enhancing his performance. IF he used PEDs, then I'd bet that he used it so it would help his injury problems.
I believe a big misconception of PED use that it's only used for enhanced performance. Instead I think it may be used more for staying healthy and more durable. Pro-athletes aren't always 100% as some believe, and realistically they are battling some sort ailment regularly. It could even be due to the grind of the extremely long season. Small stuff like that builds up and takes a toll on your body. If you are able to get rid of or even dampen any of that stuff, I'm sure any athlete's performance will be better.
We'll have to wait to find out, but I doubt it was performance enhancing the way people think it was.
