Sports Doping and the Price of Winning

Since I live in the Bay, it is impossible for daily local news facing Barry Bonds perjury trial will be held in San Francisco to escape.  

Was sitting on the grand jury in 2003 that the accused intentionally steroids. Although the group is suspected of taking steroids, it will certainly not be the first player to use the drug hoping a champion.
Doping in sport has a long history. The term "doping" has been suggested that they are from different places. In South Africa in the 18th century, the spirit used to be known as "extras" as a stimulant in ceremonial dances. Dutch thick sauce called "Doop" is known in America is expected to be a mix of depression, hallucinations and confusion.
In the late 1800s, and in 1900, the term "doping" is like a drug that can be used in the horse race, which could affect their performance.
In ancient times, people sought ways to work your body harder and longer. In the 19th century, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the people of Gabon (on the west coast of Central Africa) some leaves or roots that allow them to work happy and full of energy throughout the day without feeling tired, hungry and thirsty.
Athletes need to find ways to improve the durability and performance. One leg of the game in the UK, one of the participants on behalf of Abraham Wood in 1807, said he used opium to stay awake for 24 hours, while the competition. These types of aerobic exercise, such as running, covering more than 500 miles, has become a popular sport traders tried to exploit. The task is then for a period of six days cycling, soon spread across the Atlantic. Money raised prices, as the amount paid to see cyclists are more willing to stay awake to travel long distances. This opened the door to all sorts of treatments and medications must be given to athletes improve their performance. But instead of helping the driver to perform drug hallucinations. This has led him to become temporarily insane during the competition. Cocaine is used a second wind, even in some of the compounds, with the hope that the driver who is the sixth generation of tires a day.
During the summer Olympics in 1904, the use of strychnine is deemed necessary to survive demanding races. Even doctors time stated the utility of using drugs is a long distance athlete. J. Thomas Hicks, who won the Olympic marathon in 1904, an injection of strychnine and brandy-up during the race. Despite the fact that his health finally won the competition, which is described as "the difference between life and death."
Known as amphetamines Benzedrine made his first appearance at the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936. The street name is "speed". This has resulted in a lack of amphetamine crisis and increased risk of blood are taken into account. In sports, except for the fact that anabolic steroids were first identified in the 1930s and composition, if only sport starting in 1954. Russian weightlifters used for those who have received amazing results with greater weight gain and strength. Moment that widespread use of steroids in Olympic athletes, football players, bodybuilders and athletes from other sports and do.
The most popular, especially against doping athlete his will, it was in the 1970s in East Germany. Before the Reunification of Germany, the situation is monitored Stasi secret police known systematic doping by athletes of the GDR. While doping exists in other countries, but also in East Germany, it is the policy of the government. Athletes at the age of ten years without hormones given the negative impact it has on the body of the developing countries. Coach often see athletes pills increase was only vitamins. There are thousands of former athletes with physical and mental scars of years of drug abuse them by the state., Who said that every gold medal ideological beliefs forced to live
Doping is certainly present in all of sports. Some argued that since the doping prevention is not possible, you must be legalized. Although the fight against doping in sport will continue, and the use of anabolic steroids banned all major sports events, athletes are constantly seeking ways to gain competitive advantage. For some athletes, endangering the health and reputation for the price they want to pay for victory.
