Kingston – Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell, two of the four fastest men in history, sent shock waves through the blue riband 100m on Sunday when they admitted they had failed drug tests.

Brent Moore's insight:

It is not the first time that Olympic sprinters have been found to have used banned substances. The race between Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis in the 1988 Olympics has been call the "Dirtiest Race in History" by many because of the rampant use of banned substance by its competitors. The clash between personal and professional ethics in the pursuit of winning a sports championship often results in competitors cheating with performance enhancing drugs in an attempt to gain an edge.

Why not Carl Lewis? He had failed tests. He never admitted, just told on the winner. What makes these testing failures so shocking?

"Codes Of Ethics In Exercise And Fitness."

According to the author, Heather Hitchcock, It is best to demonstrate how personal trainers should behave professionally, which abide by the code of ethics. Portraying professional manners toward each client as well as a building a professional relationship. It is important that we maintain the client's best interest such as their safety and health. Overall, all personal trainers should abide the code of ethics by staying within the scope of practice.

Brent Moore's insight:

Personal training is a growing field with little regulation. The professional personal trainer must develop his personal and professional ethics in a way that protects the client and the trainer from harm and legal action. Many certifying agencies have their own code of ethics to help personal trainers conduct themselves in an ethical manner.

Since becoming a personal trainer is one of my aspirations, this article on ethics in exercise and fitness and what personal trainers guidelines are was extremely helpful!

Missouri Ludlum's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:47 PM

This article gives great insight into the codes of ethics for personal trainers.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:17 PM

Based on this article, I've learned that you need to be patient and have proper ettiquette in order to be successful with the people that you're training.

... of the sport in times of peace. It combines fitness and strength with artistry and culture." What she carefully omits is that Thailand embraces two cultures of muay Thai.
Brent Moore's insight:

Ethics in sports can be very different from one culture to another. The brutality of child Muay Thai competition would not be allowed in America or in national competition, but is this a question of ethics or of culture and national heritage?

The above passage is from baseball's unwritten code of ethics, a horribly dated set of behavioral demands likely to be extinct within a dozen years or so.
Brent Moore's insight:

Celebration as an ethics violation seems foolish, but I think the idea is based on a reasonable idea. Escessive celebration can take away from the game, but to allow no celebration can also make the game less enjoyable for many.

Brent Moore's insight:

Wouldn't it be great if ethics in sports were as simple as three basic rules. If you could trust people to use the three tests outlined in this article, sport competition would be a much more straight forward thing. Unfortunately, what may pass one person's "Stupid Test" may be truly ridiculous to another.

Isn't that the attitude you decry so often, that “It's not illegal” means that it must be ethical and fair? I also don't think that competitive male athletes are going to undergo gender-swap efforts to compete in women's sports.
Brent Moore's insight:

This is a great topic on the ethicality of post-operative transgender people competing in professional sports; however, reader beware, the language used in this article is not child friendly.
