Performance-Enhancing Drugs
The pressure to be the best in a sport is ever increasing, not just because they want to be the best but also for financial reasons and greater media
attention.
Some believe that it is ethically acceptable as athletes have the right to decide whether they take drugs or not, deciding for
themselves whether the benefits are worth the risks.
However, there is some serious health risks associated e.g. high blood pressure.
Although some people may not be able to make informed decisions as they are under pressure from others.
Some believe that drug use is acceptable on the grounds that there is already an inequality of competition due to the differences in
training and resources.
The main argument against is that it is simply unfair - people should get better at sport through hard work and training.
