Ben Johnson a Canadian gave a world record time for the 100 meter sprint at 979 seconds at the Seoul Olympics He was given gold and even sweeter beat American rival Carl Lewis In his moment of glory Johnson was stripped of his gold medal world record and banned from competition for two years Reason He tested positive for anabolic steroid Carl Lewis became the worlds fastest man Within 15 years he was found to have tested positive for the drug test as well But why should the scandals stop there From the US track and field cover-ups to the East Germany government sponsored cheating drugs and athletes go hand in hand But why do athletes use the drugs when so many reasons so many effects tell them its bad The fact is there is no simple answer to that question Many athletes may be pressured into using the drugs by coaches and others Other athletes simply dont care or dont want to get the facts But weather the competitors choose to acknowledge the facts or not they are still there I am for the resolution that all athletes participating in professional sports should be tested for drugs so there will be no more random tests You may ask why Why just not let the system be With mandatory testing no one can pull the slip on the officials many will reconsider losing their place in the games then gaining an advantage If everyone is tested less people will use the drugs just like cameras for speeding Studies have shown that higher prevalence of speeding cameras result in reduction of the speeding offence So in relation if everyone is tested less people will try using the drugs Ive based my resolution on 3 foundations The first foundation is the drugs poison the users body The second foundation is it gives an unfair advantage The last foundation is it encourages high school athletes to use drugs
