Doping Creeps to Sport Fields

Doping Creeps to Sport Fields

By Suren Hossein

Doping outbreak suffuses sports quickly and the International Sport Society especially in Iran is anguished because of this serious problem.

Use of performance-enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids by sports athletes has caused the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to enter onto the field to fight this outcast phenomenon.

So many athletes have confessed to using these drugs according to their doctors` instruction over the past years. Many athletes have been disqualified by the World Anti-Doping Agency because of using illegal steroids.  Ben Johnson, a former Canadian sprinter was one of them. By improving athletic performance, this allows the athlete`s popularity to ascend. Therefore, some sports athlete`s tend to earn prosperity by using Machiavellian style methods.

I believe society is guilty to want the highest standards from athletes, whereas some medicine villain dealers lure them occasionally.

It is so important to recognize how much the large organizations have done to prevent doping usage among the sports arena. These days some shops and pharmacies can provide performance-enhancing drugs easily and some athletes without knowing necessary information buy them.

Iran is a country that experiences new horizons in sport fields and unfortunately, some Iranian athletes tend to doping. Iran deputies try to advance Iranian athletes` knowledge about this hated phenomenon but it is a waste of time and energy.

In the meantime, some Iranian sports athletes do not care about Anti-Doping warnings and have not taken any doping tests.

We are starting to see some efforts to clean up doping from the Iran Sport`s Associations and hope to create a world without drugs.  Sport`s athletes should earn prosperity through their own abilities without the use of drugs or blood doping.
