Results: The Effect of Performance Enhancing Drug Use in Sports on American Society

Results: The Effect of Performance Enhancing Drug Use in Sports on American Society | Sports Ethics Magazine | Scoop.it

"Performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) have been used by athletes for decades. The first appearance of anabolic steroids was in the 1954 Olympics by the Russian weightlifting team. Once the Americans found out about this, they started putting their athletes on steroids and the rivalry was born. The east Germans were famous, or infamous, for their rigorous doping program lasting from 1968 to 1976. In that eight-year span, they dominated in the women’s sports and demonstrated the significant effectiveness of doping. This is thought to be what started the widespread use of doping in sports." http://bit.ly/1doazRa

Performance enhancing drugs has crippled the sports society in the past few years. Usually when a record is broken, many spectators question if that athlete took PEDs. It is sad to see that every record broken has to be a questionable debate.

Reginald Quince's curator insight, November 1, 2015 10:53 AM

PEDs have become almost the norm in the sports arena.  The allure of being the best is something quite of few have accepted the risk of being caught and losing it all to reach that stature.

So Why Are Performance-Enhancing Drugs Wrong?

So Why Are Performance-Enhancing Drugs Wrong? | Sports Ethics Magazine | Scoop.it

"ESPN’s Outside the Lines reports that “Major League Baseball will seek to suspend about 20 players connected to the Miami-area clinic at the heart of an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. . . . If the suspensions are upheld, the performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history.”

 

It’s worth thinking through the ethics of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). If everyone is doing it, is it still wrong? Would they be okay if they were regulated and administered safely? Do our answers say say something about the nature of the game itself? Do they say something about our view of human nature?"

PEDs has tainted MLB and thus has put many records that have been broken in question such as the famous HR derby between Sammy Soso and Mark McGuire of the same year.

Anthony J. Cameron's curator insight, September 10, 2014 4:10 PM

PEDs have tainted the game of baseball. Many of the records that were shattered like the home run record by Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire are in question due to use of PEDs.

ARE there personality traits that increase the risk an athlete will turn to performance-enhancing drugs?

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company | Sports Ethics Magazine | Scoop.it

CORAL GABLES -- Glue still stains the stucco wall of the Coral Gables office plaza where Biogenesis once operated.

 

Just a few hundred yards across US-1, the University of Miami baseball team practiced on a sunny Tuesday afternoon.

 

The association between the now-closed anti-aging clinic linked to steroids and an assistant for the proud UM baseball program was called into question by a story published Tuesday by the Miami New Times. In it, several big Major League Baseball names including Miami resident Alex Rodriguez were listed on a client list for illegal performance enhancing drugs.

 

Jimmy Goins, UM baseball's assistant strength and conditioning coach since 2004, was also listed on client lists obtained by the newspaper as among those receiving banned substances. His profile was removed from the list of coaches on UM's official athletic website Tuesday afternoon.

When contacted by phone, Goins said he was still employed by the university but referred all questions to his attorney, Gordon Fenderson.

 

"He hasn't done anything wrong either personally or as a representative of the University of Miami," said Fenderson, an attorney specializing in DUI defense with offices in Jacksonville and Coral Gables. "And as far as being on a client list of a certain doctor, any connection of the University of Miami or their baseball program would be purely coincidental."

 

Major League Baseball investigators have been on the UM campus in recent weeks interviewing school officials, sources with knowledge of baseball's probe said. But Fenderson said his client has not been contacted by investigators from either MLB or the NCAA.

 

Two former UM star players were also listed as clients on the spreadsheet obtained by the Miami New Times of alleged Biogenesis PED clients. Pitcher Cesar Carrillo (2004-05) and Yasmani Grandal (2008-10) were named, but the report didn't state when they allegedly received PEDs from Biogenesis...

Armstrong Dropped by Nike, Steps Down as Livestrong Chairman

Armstrong Dropped by Nike, Steps Down as Livestrong Chairman | Sports Ethics Magazine | Scoop.it

Lance Armstrong was dropped by Nike Inc. (NKE) and stepped down as chairman of the cancer foundation he founded one week after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agencydetailed his alleged use of performance-enhancing substances.

 

Nike, the world’s largest sporting-goods maker, said in a statement on its website that it would continue to support Livestrong initiatives to help people affected by cancer. The charity, known for its yellow Livestrong bracelets, has raised more than $470 million since 1997, according to its website.

 

“Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him,” the Beaverton, Oregon-based company said. “Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance-enhancing drugs in any manner.”

 

Nike said a week ago after the USADA report was released that it “plans to continue to support Lance.”

Lance Armstrong Ends Fight Against Doping Charges, Losing 7 Tour de France Titles, Olympic medal, Will Be Barred For Life

Lance Armstrong Ends Fight Against Doping Charges, Losing 7 Tour de France Titles, Olympic medal, Will Be Barred For Life | Sports Ethics Magazine | Scoop.it

Via The New York Times:

 

After more than a decade of outrunning accusations that he had doped during his celebrated cycling career, Lance Armstrong, one of the best-known and accomplished athletes in recent history, surrendered on Thursday, etching a dark mark on his legacy by ending his fight against charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

 

Armstrong, who won the Tour de France an unprecedented seven straight times, said Thursday that he would not continue to fight the charges levied against him by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which contended that he doped and was one of the ringleaders of systematic doping on his Tour-winning teams.

 

His decision means he will almost certainly be stripped of his seven Tour titles, the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Olympics and all other titles, awards and money he won from August 1998 on.

It also means he will be barred for life from competing, coaching or having any official role with any Olympic sport or other sport that follows the World Anti-Doping Code...

Lance Armstrong could be the most influential sports figure, for the wrong reasons. He did so much for cancer research and was so succesful in cycling, and now that is all gone. What a shame

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:00 AM

Lance Armstrong was a role model for his accomplishments as an athlete.  As a cancer survivor and true legend to many, lost so much respect when he lied to the world about using PED (performance-enhancing drugs).  Just reading this article makes me realize how much an athlete would do in order to win illegally and immorally.  I am thankful that he has no part in coaching or any other roles in sports.
