Performance Enhancing Drugs

The article begins by introducing the Olympics. Then goes on to discuss drugs combined with cheating. Also, how if taking drugs would be fair or not. The article mentions possibly reasons for taking an enhancing drug – becoming wealthy, simply excelling, or being successful. Overall, this is a topic that has multiple sides. However, I choose to not take a side. I think if they were allowed to everyone, sport events would be more amazing to watch because athletes would be performing outstandingly. Also, there would be no worries to who is or is not taking a drug. Everyone would be allowed, so there would be no need for testing. On the other hand, it would be hard to determine who really is the “best” out there. I believe if people have naturally occurring “genetic mutations” that are an advantage, then that should be okay. In the end, this will probably be a topic that will always be debatable.
