I have just explained to you how Odysseus was a hero now I am going to tell you how he was not a hero. First, Odysseus was not a hero because he was cold hearted and a selfish man. He basically did anything that he could to get home. He had killed many people. 1 SENTENCE HERE.
Such as liver failure and development of breasts. Being branded a cheat has a negative impact on not only on your career, but it also affects the individual. This is because of the public 's view of athletes as a sports people changes when they are caught cheating. Arguably being stripped of your Olympic medals has a huge effect on your personal emotions and can cause long-term psychological damage. For example,Lance Armstrong was stripped of the 7 biking titles he won as he was under the influence of performance drugs when he raced and to date has not been allowed to race again.
Mick Johnson did not only ruin his career, but a good life and a lot of friends. Mick Johnson was not happy with who he was. He wanted to be like the rest of the one in a few hundred thousand athletes that would go to the pros. You need be happy with who you are. It makes you unique.
John had explicitly called the rockets “fool things” and threw out all of Homer’s rocket building tools in the pouring rain, saying it’s “right where they belong.” The amount of discouragement and impertinence these actions hold is beyond imaginable. Additionally, when Homer’s father said “I've been mad as hell at you. But it's the first time in your life I've been ashamed of you.” Imperils Homer’s emotional and mental well being a substantial amount. Especially when one knows the odds of becoming successful coming from a town like ‘Coalwood’ is little to slim. In spite of this, Homer managed to be persistent throughout his work, and with indefatigability continued to pursue his dream.
Also in "The Sports Gene" he had semblance of the back arch that every other pro jumpers does he would have shattered the world record.

Sadly, Alfred ends his boxing career with barely any financial gain, but he does inherit inspiration and he finds his calling in life. The main reason Alfred is not rich at the end of the novel is because Alfred lacks the killer instinct that successful boxers, like Midge, have. An example of this is when Alfred is fighting Griffin and knocks him out. Instead of celebrating, Alfred immediately feels bad for knocking him out cold. In other words, Alfred feels guilty about hitting people in the ring, where Midge will do anything to succeed and win.
When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store. When Castle first stole the shoes he thought it was the best thing he has done for his track career but he was punished for it.”A close-up of my
Above mentioned drugs are banned by International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the substances in doping are not approved for use by athletes and safely tested. Hence, drugs banned by WADA and performance enhancing are really harmful for health of athletes, might cause death. Example: Mr. Knud Enemark Jensen who died immediately during competition reason amphetamine sulphate and drugs usage. Ronicol (Ronicol Retard) he used nicotinic alcohol tartrate to improve his strength. Also, another real case in 1987-1988, fourteen Dutch and four Belgians cyclist’s quiet young and healthy died unexpectedly, we also can consider another real example.
“That rule just killed all of our momentum,” said a frustrated Zerek Saldivar following the game. “It screwed us over. That rule was a major reason why they won the game.” “That's a really bad rule,” said Calaveras running back Connor Hamilton, who was selected as a team captain for

After hearing that I ran to him and got in his face and told him lets fight so we did. I knocked him out so bad that he was out cold for at least thirty seconds. When I knocked him out I instantly knew that this was not the answer and I should be ashamed of myself. When he called me a “wetback” I felt inferiors even though it was not true. From that day forward I consider myself a lover not a fighter.
It was known as the dirtiest campaign in American history. Other electors slandered him, and especially focused on his wife, Rachel, who had married him before her divorce with a previous man could be finalized. They called her an adulterer, much to Jackson 's anger and disgust. Unfortunately, within a month of election, Rachel Jackson died of a heart attack before she could officially become the First Lady of the United States. And while her death cut deeply into Jackson, he pushed on, as he knew he had to and knew she 'd want him to.
Joe’s rough start and the struggle he went through in his early years makes winning the Olympic gold medal in 1936 more meaningful and inspiring than it might have been otherwise. As a child of only 10 years, Joe faced many difficult hardships he thought would never end. From his mother dying, to being kicked out of his only home and being abandoned by his own father, he was very persistent to get what he wanted in life and to get where he wanted to be in life as well, which ultimately in exchange, led him and his meritable teammates to winning the Olympic gold medal. I find this story extraordinarily ironic due to the fact that Joe took himself and what he had, which was nothing, and made it and himself into something. All of the many difficult obstacles he faced and overcome makes it extremely difficult to believe that he had as much optimism as he did growing up
It didn’t to the government, and it wouldn’t to the people either. If people had seen this, they would have lost hope, lost trust in the government. Fear would rise- rebellions would strike, and protests will commence. This was the last thing they needed, and it is the pictures, the first-hand accounts of this that made people ponder upon this question- Was this a triumph or a disaster? And for who?
