Drugs in Sport
BY ASHLEIGH PREVITERA
"Sport is the pursuit of excellence - drugs should be allowed"
Performance Enhancing Drugs
Not something that has been recently introduced into the world of sport.

Substances that artificially increase the athletic performance of a person.

Many people have been using performance enhancing drugs since ancient times in a various range of sports.

Drugs are common in Australia and other International countries.

Side Effects of Performance Enhancing Drugs
High Blood Pressure

Acne

Salt and Fluid Retention

Abnormalities in the Liver

Psychological Disturbances

Alterations in the Menstrual Cycle
ASADA & WADA
ASADA:
AUSTRALIA SPORTS ANTI-DOPING AUTHORITY

WADA:
WORLD ANTI-DOPING AGENCY


The Australian Crime Commission released a report in conjunction with ASADA called Organised Crime and Drugs in Sport.

ASADA's Role:
To conduct the Results Management Process.
Present information to the independent Anti-Doping Rule Violation about suspected violation of the Anti-Doping Code.

Panel:
Sports Medicine
Sports Law
Clinical Pharmacology
Ethics and Investigations
Media - Drugs in Sport
Many athletes are being told that they are consuming vitamins or probiotics by:
COACHES
MANAGERS
DOCTORS
MARION JONES
3 Time Gold Medalist

Sentenced to serve 6 months in jail for lying to federal investigators about her drug consumption.
Impacts on the Law
Positively because it makes those who follow Jones, aware that if they did something like she did, their consequence could be the same, if not worse.



However, because she was part of the Olympic Federation, the consequence was less:
There are difference laws that separate elite sports and the community.
Stakeholders
Family:
because it is the athlete's decision to take drugs which affects their children, partner and parents.
Competitors:
because it comes across as unfair competition and raises assumptions whether or not the athlete consumed drugs in the past.
Spectators:
because it affects the way that they think and feel about the athlete.
feel as though it is okay to take drugs.

Evaluation
The law within this case is inequitable:
the sentence would be much higher than 6 months in jail.

Jones consumed drugs and lied to federal investigators.

WADA:
Jones should have received a 2 year suspension.
6 months in jail.

The law as a whole in the drugs and sport section is equitable for athletes because it gives all athletes a fair chance and each competitor is at the same participating level.
Recommendations
For a change to happen and have all athletes, coaches and members benefit from this change, all members:
Olympic Committee
WADA
ASADA
all need to be on board and agree with the rules and regulations that will be put into place.

All rules for elite sporting activities should be equal and fair across all countries and sporting teams/companies.

Regular drug testing.

Coaches and Managers are regularly checked up on.
Conclusion
I believe that the statement "Sport is the pursuit of excellence - drugs should be allowed" is wrong and a negative connotation to portray in elite and Olympic sport, because it defeats the purpose of competing and considering who has the higher amount of athletic ability and potential. drugs in sport is cheating and prevents fair competition.
