  • any athlete who benefits from dishonestly conferred advantages

  • ringer - a professional (paid) musician, dancer or actor hired to bolster the quality of the performance and increase the pleasure of performers and audience alike, especially in amateur groups. There is no negative connotation and no implication of fraud.

    Eg. There were a couple of ringers in the string section of the orchestra.
