Sport's top ten most notorious drug cheats | fanatix Sport News | Drugs in sport | Scoop.it
fanatix looks at who has made the headlines for all of the wrong reasons after they tested for drugs and cheated their sport.
Ben Edwards's insight:

I believe that these people who are accused of using drugs and then are put in the top ten most notorious drug cheats are sad, sad people. All these people have used drugs and won the sport they are competing for. If I had advice for professional sportsmen and women it would be to play the sport you love and don't take drugs to make yourself better. Train to make yourself better.

Ben Edwards's insight:

I believe that some of Essendon's players are using performance enhancing drugs. I also believe that Jobe Watson saying that he didn't know what was going inside of him is not a good enough excuse to not be punished for the drugs he had been taking. I think that ASADA should have finished this investigation before now.

Calls for drugs in sport are daft
sportal.co.nz
It was predictable that yet more disclosures on sportspeople being found to have boosted their performances by drug use would result in calls of making drugs legal in sport.
Ben Edwards's insight:

I think it is absolutely absurd that they would even have the idea of make drugs legal in sport. That just ruins the fun because it's whoever has the best drugs would win and I find that horribly wrong.

3 Sprinters Test Positive for Banned Substances
NPR
Three well-known track and field athletes from the United States and Jamaica have tested positive for banned substances.
Ben Edwards's insight:

I believe that cheating in sport by using banned substances is very low and I believe that the people who test positive to banned substances should be banned for life. Especially in sprinting when the difference between winning and losing is less than a second.
