Damien's insight:

How much pressure is too much for young athletes? Top athletes have so much pressure on them by coaches and fans that we forget that they are still kids. Marcus Smart is now known for his infamous push of a fan who was badgering him while he struggled on the court to help his loosing team win. It was debated whether Marcus should have been in the game due to his recent breakdowns, but he is a top athlete so despite his mental and emotional instability he was left in the game and this was that was the end result.

Damien's insight:

Sometimes it helps to be influenced in a good way by reminding athletes of the players who came before them and never used performance enhancing drugs even if it was because they were unavailable at that time. Even so they still accomplished the same feats.

Younger athletes feel pressure to cheat

With reports that as many as 20 major leaguers may soon face discipline for the use of performance enhancing drugs, younger athletes too say they feel the pr...
Damien's insight:

Ethical behavior should be expressed from an early age in sports but instead what is happening is that the pressure is packed on young athletes so that they feel the need to cut corners. Since there are no drug tests in high school sports so coaches do not teach about the uses of performance enhancing drugs, instead they just put pressure on the student athletes to get bigger, stronger and faster or they won't make it.

Damien's insight:

Lance Armstrong may have been the most beloved athlete to ever get caught doping. He lied to the people that loved him and looked up to him for years as continued to destroy the competition. Even though he had to battle cancer, it was not an ethical decision nor it did it it give him the right to use performance enhancing drugs to return to sports.
