Christopher Huller's insight:

I think after the shame of being caught, Lance Armstrong donating to the anti-doping efforts is a nice try, but I do not think it will make up for all the people he disappointed.

Christopher Huller's insight:

Part of my page on performance enhancing page is to show the history of how the pressure of doping has caused athletes to use performance enhacing drugs. This is not a new thing in the past few years, this has been occuring for a long time.

Feds investigating Biogenesis for providing performance enhancing ... | Sports Ethic: Huller, C. | Scoop.it
An anti-aging clinic at the heart of a Major League Baseball drug scandal is now being investigated by federal authorities for suspicion that the clinic provided performance enhancing drugs to high school athletes.
Christopher Huller's insight:

This article is a great example of how the use of performance enhancing drugs has led to the investigation of the illegal activities also committed. It is unethical to use these drugs, but it is also illegal for places to sell the drugs.
