Many pro-athletes have had titles taken away from them and been
banned from the sports they love. For example, Lance Armstrong won
great amount of races, the biggest being The Tour De France, but most of
his titles were stripped. Why you ask? It was because Lance was found
used steroids which improved his performance and made all the hard
aspects of the race…show more content… Steroids are prohibited in many
American sports. “By taking performance enhancing drugs, athletes are
making challenges easier, and challenges are the things that make sports
so appealing in the first place” (O’connor 17).
Athletes take anabolic steroids to increase muscle mass, which makes
them stronger. when athletes are bigger and stronger, they tend to perform
better and bring fear to their competitors. When athletes are taking
steroids, the athlete performs better than they would if they were off
steroids. This is because steroids include certain kinds of hormones which
act as chemical messengers to the body.
Second, taking steroids increases athletes chances of going pro, but
it does not mean athletes will do well in the pros. In 2004, officials started
cracking down on athletes taking steroids (Wadler). Taking steroids in
sports to get to the next level is illegal, unfair, and morally wrong. Recently,
the use of steroids has gone down, but it is not completely diminished.
“Steroids have been abused in sport in sports for decades”
