Drugs in Sport

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

The issue of drugs in sport has grown in importance during the past 30 years since the International Olympic Committee (IOC) drafted its first list of prohihited
substances and methods in 1968, Drug testing was introduced that year at the
Mexico Olympic Games, The prohibition on the use of drugs in sport reflected the philosophy that drugs either gave athletes an unfair advantage, or were dangerous to health or both. In recent times, with the discussion on the prohibition of
marijuana, a third philosophy has been promoted - namely, that athletes have a
public responsibility as role models.
