This Is Why The Steroid Era Isn't Over In Sports

This Is Why The Steroid Era Isn't Over In Sports | Better testing protocols in sports when testing for steroids | Scoop.it

“Drug testing is still impotent, has been impotent since it started," said Charles Yesalis, a professor of health policy administration, exercise and sports science at Pennsylvania State University. "Frankly, many of these drugs work way too well and there's way too much money involved to ever see a light at the end of the tunnel.”


While pleased with the progress of its mission to stamp out performance-enhancing drugs in sport, even the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency agreed that testing doesn't always work

 

But he noted that it was a "one-time deal" because someone -- former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer -- "ratted out" Biogenesis, leading to the MLB doping revelations. Similarly, the BALCO scandal in 2003 started when Trevor Graham, who coached track and field athletes for the Olympics, anonymously turned in a dirty syringe to the USADA, revealing that athletes were getting a then-unknown drug from the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative.

 

“It's still going on," Yesalis said. "The only way baseball or any other sports federation will be able to get power is to do almost police sting operations because drug testing has been a flop.”

 

“Unfortunately, we always tend to be behind people who are creating these things and using them," said Dr. Alex Diamond, a sports medicine doctor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. "There's so much money involved in it, they're always able to get a step ahead and we're always trying to play catch up”

Alex Martin's insight:

This is a good article because ABC news shows that more and more pro athletes are comming forward with their use of steroids. With the Number of athletes each year getting caught, it makes you wonder, "How many athletes are doping and getting away with it?" With the number rising, More and more ways to get by the test clean, there deffiently needs to be more protocols.

Alex Martin's insight:

I think this article is useful because it is showing that steroid users in pro sports are recieving more and more votes for the MLB Hall of Fame. In my opinion, if pro athletes who use steroids are getting voted into the hall of fame, it is telling other athletes, "We recognize their use of PED's and we dont care."

Melky Cabrera was having an MVP-like season before testing positive for steroids and earning a 50-game suspension. It was a big blow to the Giants, as most wrote them off due to the lack of pop in their offense.

Alex Martin's insight:

This article proves that the use of steroids greatly impact an athlete's stats. I think this should push those in charge of steroids to look at the statistics of athletes and use that to determine if they are doping.

Lance Armstrong admits doping

Lance Armstrong admits doping | Better testing protocols in sports when testing for steroids | Scoop.it

Lance Armstrong has admitted for the first time that he used steroids, EPO and PED during his cycling career. He claimed in a television interview with Oprah Winfrey that he would not have been able to win seven Tour de France titles without cheating, such was the prevalence of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport at the time.

Alex Martin's insight:

I think this article gives a great example of a pro athlete who's career is now tarnished due to his use of steroids throughout his cycling career. Dating back to 1999, Lance has been given drug test after drug test. Even after failing multiple times, he began using his illness and rehabilitation as an excuse. Up until early 2013, Armstrong had denied all the alligations to steroids. In an interview with Oprah, he admitted to all the alligations, which included cheating on well over half of the drug tests.

The Guardian suggests that Oprah was the real dope for allowing Armstrong to evade answers to some of her questions, but I seriously doubt that any other broadcaster could have elicited a confession from the man. Forget the nitpicking over details, Armstrong has spilled the beans.
