Self-Coaching

Self-Coaching | Sports Ethics: Woods W | Scoop.it
Self-coaching is the process of guiding our growth and development, particularly through periods of transition, in both the professional and personal realms.

Don Dea's curator insight, July 14, 2013 1:27 AM

Change is rarely easy, but the self-awareness noted above can make the process much easier. Heightened self-awareness allows us to make different choices, both in the moment and over time. In the moment, we can act--or we can refrain from action. In situations where we might tend to lean back (for example, to avoid a conflict, or to shrug off work that seems difficult, rather than be limited by our pre-existing mental models and beliefs about ourselves, we can step forward and act.

Cycling Is Cleaner Sport, Not a Safer One - ETHICS IN SPORT

Cycling Is Cleaner Sport, Not a Safer One - ETHICS IN SPORT | Sports Ethics: Woods W | Scoop.it

Where to now for Cycling?? Should there be a paradigm shift?

 

While more cycling teams are committed to racing clean, more needs to be done, a cyclist says (Michael Barry), if the sport is to shake its past.

Andrew Flanagan's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:05 PM

Cycling will always be reffered to as one of the dirtiest sports there is. Michael Barry wrote a very interesting article how he made many unethical decisions in his past not only doping but also riding with broken bones but they way things were 10 years ago you had too. He talks about how the sport is becoming cleaner but how health is still not a large priority. Ethics, fairness, and organizational culture all play a role in this article. Riders from many different teams are coming out and saying how dangerous and corrupt the sport has been and it would take a governing body to fix it. 

Anthony J. Cameron's curator insight, September 12, 2014 2:06 PM

There are so many athletes that have won on the grandstand without the use of performance enhancing drugs. Cycling has tried to clean up their image since the Lance Armstrong's case. His case tainted that sport and questions other cyclists that compete at the Tour de France.

Lance Armstrong: You can't win TDF without drugs | Sports Ethics: Woods W | Scoop.it

Nobody can win the Tour de France without taking performance-enhancing drugs, Lance Armstrong, the disgraced seven-times winner of the race has said. His comments will infuriate last year's winner, Sir Bradley Wiggins, who insists that the sport is now clean

His comments will not only infuriate rights holders, but also the Tour organisers, sponsors, the UCI and broadcasting rights holders, amongst others.

The changing face of football media

The changing face of football media | Sports Ethics: Woods W | Scoop.it

There used to be a very well defined football media in England. The established mainstream media had a vice-like grip over opinion and the news agenda. Clubs had little direct access to supporters, so were beholden to journalists who had an influential voice. But the landscape has shifted, and it is continuing to evolve.

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: Woods W | 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.

Despite the probability of getting caught, professional athletes continue to be tempted to take chemical shortcuts to cheat their way to victory, fame and fortune.

Renee Anne Shirley's curator insight, January 19, 2014 12:35 PM

IMO athletes believe that the odds of getting caught cheating are significantly less than the rewards to be gained from doping...until we can lessen the odds we will continue to lose the war! In this video Prof Arne Ljungqvist provides insights into some high-profile doping scandals, including the Ben Johnson scandal and Balco affair. 

Donald Magnuson's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:43 PM

Despite several high profile cases in the last few years, it is clear that athletes are still willing to risk their careers for the artificial gains from doping and steroids.  Stepping outside the rules for a competitive advantage raises ethical questions for the athletes, their trainers and coaches, and even national team officials and politicians, who see athletic success as proving national superiority.

Jason Hammel's curator insight, May 9, 2015 12:43 PM

No matter the punishment professional athletes continue to take the risk with steroids and other performance enhancing drugs
