Letter: Athletes should never boost ability with drugs
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Allowing drug use in sports is ridiculous.

Drugs are not good for our physical well-being and health. Allowing their use in sports will have negative consequences in the long run in exchange for some short-term beneficial effects.

Drugs provide an unfair advantage and take away from the natural abilities and hard work of deserving athletes. People will stop putting forth the effort to become better naturally and resort to performance-enhancing drugs to compete.

As a varsity athlete at my high school, I strongly believe that performance-enhancing drugs should never be used in sports.
