Drugs in Sport
Transcript of Drugs in Sport
Spotsmanship has a major contribution to sport. It starts from shaking hands at the end of a match to accepting bad calls during the game. Profesionals need to promote this aspect alot more. By practicing good sportsamnship you gain the respect of others, especially kids. Using drugs in sport is definatly bad sportmanship as it is not playing fair.
Professionals also work wothin their communities promoting sportmanship and values needed to become a professional sportsperson

"In the name of all the competitors I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams."
Role models/Sporting heroes
Youth are most impressionable. They are influenced by their parents, the media and their favourite celebrities. If youth are mimicking a basketball- shot style, a touchdown dance or a clothing style, what’s to say that they won’t use the same performance-enhancing drugs that their idols use.
Sports in media
We should be shocked by drugs in sport but we're not. The outrage of 20 years ago seems to have mellowed into a cynical acceptance that performance-enhancing drug-taking is endemic and a fact of life.

Pressure to Perform
Most people play sport for fun, other people play only to win. Coaches and parents can put a lot of pressure on children to perform starting at a young age moving through to college and representative sports.
Is it worth it?

What is Winning?
When taking sports teams/games either as a coach or a teacher is the goal to win or to enjoy the game? Many people would argue that there is no point in a competitive sport if your goal is not to strive to win. But with that perspective how far do you go? Is society pressuring athletes and our students to want to win at all costs?
Do the Negatives outweigh the Positives?
Professional athletes today make millions of dollars for being the best, and often get wrapped in their fame. They want to stay on top and sometimes professional athletes use steroids to stay there. Youth have watched the progression of steroids through the years and the perceived benefits are outweighing the negative effects in their minds. Too many athletes get away with using steroids, ending up with an MVP award, a higher salary and a World Series championship, so why wouldn’t youth try using them?
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Baron Pierre de Coubertin
