Legalise doping or lose the spectacle of sport - ETHICS IN SPORT/HUMAN PERFORMANCE | Drugs in Sport | Scoop.it

Czech E.'s curator insight, October 19, 2014 11:06 AM

 As strength trainers and conditioning trainers, coaches, or physical therapists -- the professionals who help shape these athletes, we face a decision: "to dope or not to dope."

Sport is going through a constant doping crisis. Arguments about the danger of enhancement drugs are still present. 


Read to see what what others think of the topic...

Mark Silva's curator insight, January 13, 9:28 PM

So...because organizations are failing to live by the "zero tolerance" of doping, people honestly think we should consider legalizing the use of drugs and performance enhancing drugs in particular for athletes. Instead of bringing down the standard to meet the athletes, we should be bringing the athletes up to the standard.
