SHOULD ATHLETES WHO TAKE DRUGS BE BANNED FROM EVER COMPETING AGAIN? Gwenyth Chan (4) 7D Most athletes get good results from their own talent and from lots of training
But some of them use drugs to enhance their performance, which is illegal! Should athletes who are caught taking them be banned from ever competing again? In the Olympics, current punishment for taking drugs is:
• 2 year ban for first offense
• Stripping of any recently won medals
• Life ban for second offense During ancient times, there were already cases of athletes using special diets and stimulating potions to improve their performance
In 1928 the IAAF (athletics) became the first International Sport Federation (IF) to ban doping (use of stimulating substances)
Most IFs introduced drug testing by the 1970s
Despite all this, some athletes are still caught taking drugs from time to time Taking drugs is against the law and people should be punished severely for it
If a person starts cheating, they keep cheating
Sports and drugs don’t mix
People are responsible for their actions and face consequences
Lifetime ban a good incentive not to take drugs A lifetime sports ban is not appropriate for crime of drug use
After the first conviction, people should get a second chance
No one is perfect
You learn from your mistakes
Human condition is about forgiveness, learning, changing and developing as people No matter what, taking drugs is not good for health
Think about the harm and damage that drugs will cause I think athletes who take drugs shouldn’t be banned from ever competing again
Everyone deserves a second chance
Athletes have gone through a lot of training, and lifetime ban after the first time will waste all their hard work If an athlete was caught taking drugs, I would suggest banning him/her for 2 years the first time and banning him/her for life the second time, just like the rule used in Olympics
The athletes’ trainers should tell the athletes not to take drugs and explain the side effects of drugs
If a trainer encourages athletes to take drugs, trainer should be punished as well Don’t take drugs just to win
“The most important thing is not to win but to take part!”
