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 | Coaching and teaching athletes to win without using PEDs | 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

Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

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.

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.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Clean it Up

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Clean it Up | Coaching and teaching athletes to win without using PEDs | Scoop.it
sports ethics, clean it up, sports strategy, practice, professional excellence in sports.
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

I really like the fact of cleaning up the game and playing it the right way free of drugs, cheating, promoting teamwork and sportmanship. Sports have really changed over the past century with all the outbreaks of PEDs, cheating, forged birth certificates, and scandals.

Code of Ethics in Sport

Children in Sport - The Code of Ethics The roles of parents, coaches, club leaders, sports clubs and governing bodies in sports.
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

Ethics must be taught at a very young age to children by the parents. It is so important that kids understand the meaning behing sport ethics. Every parent, coach, club leader, and sports governing body has a moral obligation to instill this information to a young kid or athlete.

Coaching Is.....

Great clips of great coaches.
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

A coach has so much influence on an athlete, from mentoring, coaching or just giving life lessons. I am not saying that they have to act like their mother or father, but the guidance and leadership they give to those athletes can set them up for success.

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

Cycling Is Cleaner Sport, Not a Safer One - ETHICS IN SPORT | Coaching and teaching athletes to win without using PEDs | 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.

Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

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.

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.

Officials said the incident happened on Sept. 12 at Treadway Elementary in Leesburg.

Elizabeth Edmonds, a third-grade teacher, was so high that the school principal noticed, according to officials.

The district drug tested her immediately. Officials said she tested positive for marijuana and opiates, a class of drugs which include Vicodin, morphine, heroin and codeine...

Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

As a teacher you have the ability to reach out to a greater audience when you have students. This teacher put her students lives in jeopardy by showing up high to her class. At no point at all was she trying to set a positive example for her students. Her actions was uncalled for and disturbing.

Why Not Cheat? How Our Ethics Alters Our Happiness: Jennifer Baker at TEDxCharleston

An Associate Professor of Philosophy at the College of Charleston with an interest in applying ancient ethical standards to modern day life, Jennifer discuss...
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

In my opinion, when athletes are caught cheating, I do not believe their ethics alter their happiness at the time. They are so thrilled to win at any cost, they will risk it all to be at that level. At the professional level, you are showing younger athletes it is ok to cheat to win.

CBS Sports' James Brown delivers strong anti-domestic violence message
CBSSports.com
Few sportscasters are more universally respected than CBS Sports' James Brown.
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

One key point that I took away from this message was that there is no place for domestic violence or any other crimes in professional sports. As a professional athlete, you have a professional ethic that they must strictly adhere to since you are in the public eye. Maybe that athlete has different personal ethics on domestic violence, but at the end of the day they work for a company and must act accordindly to their policies.

Plenty of athletes cheat, but surely not CrossFit Games competitors. After all, it's drug tested so they can't take PEDs, right? (Wrong.) (The CrossFit Games is drug tested.
Anthony J. Cameron's insight:

I agree that there are plenty of athletes that cheat and get away with it. I think all sports at a professional, college, high school, and even amateur level need to be drug-tested. The use of performance enhancing drugs is on the rise.
