Should steroids be allowed in Sports

1. Introduction
Imagine watching a marathon where everybody is stronger for most of the race.
The thrill and suspense of who is going to win would be much more than we
experience today. Steroids use in sports has been questioned due to unfairness and
performance enhancement for the athletes.
Thesis Statement
While the use of steroids to enhance performance would create a thrilling sports
experience while offering players a chance to reach maximum potential, it poses
serious health issues, creates an unfair advantage while demeaning the spirit of
sportsmanship.
2. Background Paragraph
Use of steroids in sports runs deep in history with the third Olympics where an
injection of strychnine led to the success of Thomas Hicks. Over the years, several
players have been banned permanently from different sports after testing positive in a
doping test.
3. Health Risks due to use of Steroids
Evidence
a.

Changes in female and male secondary characteristics

b.

Some psychiatric problems have been reported

c.

Heart conditions when recommended doses are exceeded.

Therefore, steroids should not be allowed in sports to safeguard against adverse health
effects.
4. Unfair advantage in the playing field
Evidence
a.

Unequal access to the performance enhancing steroids for competitors

b.

Some exploit science to pass dope tests

c. Demean the objective of sports
Sports are meant to entertain as people marvel at the endurance of the body, spirit and
mind of man, hence enhancements makes it unfair.
5. Preserving the spirit of sportsmanship
Evidence
a.

Truthfulness and fairness in competition

b. Celebration of endurance of human spirit
c.

Role models for the future generations

Anti-doping programs ensure that the essence of sport I not lost through use of steroids
and other performance enhancing substances.
6. Counter Arguments Paragraph
Those in support of doping argue that:
-

Enhancement is not different from training

-

Legalization would create fairness and thrill for the audience

-

Use of enhancers can be monitored to avoid overuse

7. Concluding section
The use of steroids in sports demeans the essence of the competition, with associated
health risks and unfair advantage. Therefore, it should not be allowed to ensure that
players can embrace ethics, fairness and integrity which is critical as they are role models
to the younger generations. The anti-doping programs should be enhanced to ensure
higher detection and sensitivity to discourage players from doping.
