Even some Olympic athletes cheat with drugs As new ways of doping emerge, scientists develop ways to catch the cheaters Sarah Zielinski Aug 15, — 7: But some may turn to an illegal short-cut: Scientists are working to find these cheaters.
Russia brought only about 70 percent of the athletes it had expected would compete. Some 30 percent — including all weightlifters and all but one track and field athletes — were banned from the competition. They were caught up in a cheating scandal. These drugs have medical purposes for people who are ill.
But in healthy athletes, they can provide an illegal advantage by boosting muscle growth or offering other benefits. But those who do, and are caught, face serious consequences. They can be banned from their sport.
And their past wins may be erased. Athletes also can get banned for refusing to participate in or tampering with efforts to find others who use doping drugs.
The Russian scandal involved an elaborate plot to interfere with these tests. But as people have developed new ways to dope, so have scientists worked on ways to find them.
Back then, athletes took substances such as strychnine STRIK-nynea poison, to run faster and fight better. The modern era of doping, though, began in the middle of the 20th century.
Soldiers in World War II took such drugs to overcome fatigue. They seemed to help athletes, too. During that time, athletes also began taking anabolic steroids.
These drugs mimic the human hormone testosterone Tes-TOS-tur-ohn. In medicine, these drugs can offer useful benefits, such as stimulating appetite or regaining lost muscle. But healthy athletes figured out that they could also use the drugs to get bigger and stronger.
Such drug use can have deadly consequences, though. During the fall he hit his head, fracturing his skull. An autopsy found traces of an amphetamine in his blood. Afterward, Olympic officials began regularly testing athletes for banned drugs.
It did, however, make it a lot harder for them to get away with it. As new drugs and ways of doping emerged, officials banned these, too.
And with each new development, scientists have figured out ways to scout out signs that an athlete has used these doping substances. Cyclists participating in the Olympics in London, England.Testosterone, Anabolic Steroids, and Human growth hormone are the new trend in the sports filed, athletes are doping.
The shallowness of the coverage on the latest sports doping by athletes and how doping becoming the issue in every sport.
