Here’s a snippet of the essay.

 

 

A drug refers to any substance that affects the biological functioning of a human being or animal. There is usually a misconception between drugs and medicine. A medicine is a substance taken by a patient for cure or treatment of diseases or for general promotion of health such as vaccination. It can be argued that all medicines are drugs but not all drugs are medicines. A sport is a form of competitive physical activity that happens casually or in an organized manner with a main aim of using, maintaining and improving physical abilities of the participants and entertaining them. Examples of sports include; athletes, soccer, volleyball, rugby, swimming, hockey, skating among others. Organized sports are usually governed by preset rules and regulations in order to make the results just and fair. One who breaks the rules in a sporting activity is penalized or even disqualified depending on the weight of the foul-play (Dubley 2001). Doping is a commonly used word in this field. In the layman’s language it means adding impurities to something. In sports, it means use of performance enhancing drugs in to boost one’s competitive and physical abilities.

 

In the few past years in sports, research has shown that many sportsmen have engaged in drugs to enhance their performances in their given fields. This is a foul-play and leads to lower reputation for the sportsman from his fans and is more criticized by his ‘haters’. An example of players who have engaged in use of drugs is baseball player Mark Mcgwire from the St. Loius Cardinals who used androstenedione, a legal drug to boost his performance and set a record.

 

This paper takes into account the use of anabolic steroids, sedatives and tranquilizers s by Olympic athletes. Many athletes around the world indulge in the use of performance-enhancers despite the fact that they are highly disapproved by the International Olympics Committee (IOC).

Attitudes and Beliefs

In the modern world, young people grow up believing that there is a cure for any type of sickness. They further believe that a healthy person needs a supplement in their diet to make them even better4. Although such substances may not be practically hazardous, young people use them in form of diets, hormones and vitamins. Some of these drugs may boost performance but in the long-run may end up causing some form of harm to the user1.
