People of the WADA I stand here today with a proposal, which will improve and revolutionized the sports world. I propose for performance enhancing drugs to be allowed in professional sports. Steroids and other illicit performance enhancing drugs have become the biggest scourge of professional sports leagues, and that’s why it is time they were made legal. PED’s or steroids became a problem around the early 1940’s and since then no one has been able to stop them. They started being used by the USSR for the Olympic Games and at the time the Soviet Union was dominating in every single sport, now performance enhancement drugs (PED’s) have come a long way and are a lot more complex, but one issue is still common; the moral rights concerning them.
Even though using performance enhancement drugs can give athletes benefits, but it can also cause harm and severe danger as well, therefore using drugs in sports should still be illegal. Competitors would prepare harder and try to meet their goals while some will attempt to cheat their way by utilizing enhanced medications to expand their capacities even beyond. The want to win is very affected in the idea of games, and a few competitors will do whatever it takes to ascend to the top. Over the most recent few years, numerous competitors in various games have been caught using performance enhancement drugs. At the point when a competitor tests positive to participate in sports, the competitor is either disqualified or suspended for the entire game.
AS91101 - 2.4 Writing Portfolio Piece Two - Cooper Title: Drugs in sports Drugs have become an integral part of any modern day sporting event. Drugs give an unfair advantage to the user and the competitors that are using enhancements are not using their own full abilities to win the Olympic medal or championship. This makes it unfair to other competitors that are not using a drug or other enhancements to compete. Athletes like Lance Armstrong and Nadzeya Ostapchuk not only give sportsmen and women a bad reputation but influence the way the public think about sports and run the risk of addiction and long-term health issues. Such as liver failure and development of breasts.
Performance enhancing drugs are substances or drugs that are used to improve any form of activity performance in humans. These performance enhancing drugs have the ability or potential to tremendously alter the human body. The use of those performance enhancing drugs in competitive sports is known as doping. This includes the fact that it can also improve an athlete's performance in certain areas. This is the reason why many athletes and bodybuilders are associated with the use of PEDs (Reardon and Creado, 2014).
¨Richard Callicott, former Chief Executive of UK Sport, stated in a Nov. 1, 2003 article titled¨ "Yes or No? Question of the Week: Drugs in Sport," published in The Times (London):"As the national anti-doping agency we will never accept this. Performance-enhancing drugs are not only prohibited because they violate the spirit of sport but because they can damage the health of athletes. In 1976, the East German swimming team won 11 out of 13 Olympic events, and later sued the government for giving them anabolic steroids.In 1992, Vicky Rabinowicz interviewed small groups of athletes. She found that Olympic athletes, in general, believed that most successful athletes were using banned substances.¨ There will be no reason to play the sport anymore if people cheat.thomas ¨H.
Although performance enhancing drugs can help an athlete do better, performance enhancing drugs should not be allowed to be used because they are a form of cheating and are unhealthy. Some critics argue that athletes should use performance enhancing drugs believe that they would cause the athlete to do better. They postulate that , “...the rewards for winning are too great, the penalties for cheating too light, and the chances of being caught too vanishingly small. Put in their position, most sane people would do the same, for the simple reason that doping pays the bills and feeds the family” (Reilly). Taking PED’s would then cause them to play better which then would lead to them winning and then making a lot of money.
Some people see taking performance-enhancing drugs as harmless and beneficial as coaching and training. They also believe that these drugs have the same importance as utilities used in sports like extreme rock climbing for example. One can climb cliffs, but one can climb them easier with the help of ropes, crampons, and oxygen. Some athletes spend much more time in the weight room than others and thereby build their muscular strength to levels significantly higher than their opponents’, those opponents who want to remain competitive may feel compelled to also put in more time with weights. But there is nothing wrong about the situation that should lead those interested in maintaining sportsmanship to forbid or regulate weight training.
Panning Drugs in Sports A healthy mind come from a healthy body, this quote is used a lot whenever people want to live healthy and become disease free because having a good health have become a hard thing among people. There are many types of people in this world, there are people who are interested in nutrition and there are people who are interested in sports and nutrition. Those types of people are considered in the very top level of their good health, but having a very good health comes with a price. As people try to compete to be the best by using illegal methods such as using drugs in sport competitions or using drugs to enhance their athletic performance. In this argument essay I think that drugs should be panned in sports because they will affect people's health and it may lead them to death.
It became many athletes daily routine to dope up before a game. It use to be that steroids never had positive effects on the body now today we find that times have changed. Many believed steroids are only bad for the body but in my research it could go both ways. According to Lemouse a writer for the Health Guidance “Among other things the positive effects of steroids include increased muscle mass, tissue repair, endurance and fat loss”. There’s a lot in sports when your in competition it’s all about who’s the strongest or has the most endurance in most sports.
Therefore My is that drug abuse should be banned from sports permanently due to the harmful effects it has on the athlete’s and the spirit of sports. People might argue otherwise but taking drugs to better your performance is sports can relate to a student cheating on a test without even studying for it, while other students put in the effort to study hard so they can try to earn a good grade. The use of cheating to benefit is unfair to those who put in the time and effort. However, Performance enhancing drugs have been around where it was used by the greeks in ancient times, sadly the effects of ped hasn 't changed, and athletes to this day still use it too better their performance. For example, Barry Bonds was one of baseballs best hitters ever, putting up video game stats and holding records.
