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.

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.

Interesting enough that this occured over 10 and 11 year old sports. It is just eye opening that a coaches pressure is so intense that they feel they must lower themselves to this level in order to win a game. This happens in many cases involving sports. Coaches have a lot riding on if they have a winning season. Sports have turned from fun to WIN.

The establishment of a code of ethics is vital for every program including athletics. I believe if this is establish for both the players and coaches the incidents with unethical coaches will decrease.
