Racism in sports
Racism in sports can be in teamed or in individual sports around the world. It has led to a wide range of incidents which have been shown in the media. The sports them self doesn't have racism but the people that participate in playing, organization and watching the sports bring the racism into sports. Some nations, such as the UK have used sports in order to battle racism in its society. sport it meant to played with freedom of discrimination of any player.

The effects of racism in football is that if there is a fan that shouts racist abuse out this then has an inpact on the football club and the other fans.
for example the Croatian Football Feberation was fined 80000 euros after fans were shout racist abuse at an italian football player because he was black.

Athletes are banned from taking thousands of drugs because experts believe it will give them an unfair advantage.
there are 5 main categories of drugs that are banned and they are.
•Anabolic steroids - these help athletes to build muscle, and to recover faster from training;
•Peptide hormones - these are substances that occur naturally in the body, but which produce similar effects to the anabolic steroids;
•Strong analgesic painkillers - such as morphine and other opiates;
•Stimulants - drugs like amphetamines and cocaine can raise the heart rate and may improve performance;
•Diuretics - chemicals that help the body to lose fluids, and may, for instance, be useful in helping boxers to meet their fighting weight.

gamesmanship plays a big part in sports because if you are in a team you want to make sure you and your team feel equal in the team.

In climbing a bit of competition is good but if you support each other when your are climbing then you would be able to achieve more.
even in kayaking because if you were kayaking in teams and if a member of your team capsized then you would go and save them and the same the other way round if you capsized you would want someone to save you.

the effect in this is that it is encouraging team work and it is essential in working life.
racism is sports is a big problem as it is illegal and discriminatory conduct that need to be dealt with as it is unacceptable.
the effect of drugs in sports it that when one person in that sport takes drug then people start to think that everyone in that sports take drugs and puts a bad name to it
for example in cycling when Lance Armstrong been taking drugs, so people are thinking that everyone in the sport are taking drugs
