Individuals who use drugs to enhance their performance in sports ought to be given the boot for life! United States Athletes are the worst culprits in this silly act. They use drugs to enhance their performances only to confess after 4 or 8 years that they had been using drugs during their active careers.
Simply because these performance enhancers can be conceal also makes a silly mockery of the dope tests conducted routinely by the sporting organisations or agencies. If an enhancer can be conceal or undetected, what is the need for the dope test?
There is a lot of celebration and astonishment now in the Olympics. The truth is that we have seen those before. We also knew how some of these athletes ended later on. Some died suddenly because of their dependence on drugs. Imagine someone setting a world record that could stay forever.
Others came out several years to confess about their shameful acts. Marion Jones was never caught in a dope check but she eventually broke down.
How many of these athletes in China 2008 are clean? We will never know.
It is a scnadal that while some are competing on human strength, others are carting away the medals using superficial supports.
What a world!
