    Humanity are on the constant pursuit of better and better records in sports. For the past few decades, there has been countless of changes in the sports stage. Athletes have been using better shoes, opted for better diets, and all of these are for the purpose of improving performance in sports.

    Year after year Olympic records are being broken. If we legalize the use of performance-enhancing drugs wouldn’t that help propel the sports stage?

    It depends on what you want from the Olympics. Do you really just compete to push the limits, or do you want to keep the value of playing sports? Sure, you can break records easily using drugs, but did you keep the integrity of the sport. No. If sports were to go down that route, it would not be the better athlete that won, but the person who got the best performance-enhancing drugs.

    I think not, because it would be like that:
    • The more rich you are, the better results you get (better drugs etc.)
    • there would be several black markets

    Absolutely not in my opinion that is cheating because you are adding extra chemicals to enhance your performances and its not fair to those that train hard at all hours of the day just to come and get beat by somebody who probably only trained a couple of times because they knew they were going to get enhanced performance chemicals. Also, it would defeat the purpose of the Olympics instead of them showing off their natural skills will become the competition of who has the better enhancement and the enjoyment of the sports will be lost forever.
