In a nutshell, doping is harmful be it to the human body or to our personal reputation. It can seriously harm the body in many unexpected ways and it can also input male features into females and vice versa. In the context of our own personal reputation, we will also lose the trust of the people who believe in us and most importantly, the society. All these effects will adversely affect us in one way or another and it is best to stay away from them by controlling ourselves from taking drugs in a sports event despite of the immeasurable thirst for victory. "WINNING ISN'T EVERYTHING, it's the only thing." This is the often repeated comment of a famous National Football League coach, the late Vince Lombardi. (Quoted from: http://www.bookrags.com/researchtopics/drugs-and-sports-os/ ).
This thirst for victory is usually the terrorizing factor that encourages the act of doping. Moreover, if winning is everything, then everyone will do anything to be able to win. However, coaches and trainers are sometimes are seen as the major obstacles to drug-free sports. They are usually the one who hands out drugs to the athletes. Therefore, athletes and coaches should also be educated.
The main reason for doping for almost 80% of all athletes is usually for... that’s right, it’s MONEY!! Athletes dope for many reasons ranging from family problems, peer pressure and debt problems. These reasons will instigate the athletes to dope in order to win those prizes for the benefit of themselves or their family. Therefore, in order to resolve the doping problem in the modern world, government should also play a part by educating the public or providing subsidies or special privileges for the poor and the needy so that they, the poor and the needy would not resort to underhand means of getting cash, almighty dollars, banknotes or chips.
