Steroids are everywhere and used in almost all sports

The cheating drug, an enhancement to improve athletes’ overall performance to the extreme- the disturbing part of it is, they’re used in the better part of any competitive contest that involves a pay cheque with a bunch of zeros.

It very well might take me a straight week of researching day and night to list all the people, who instead of busting their butt limitlessly working on their craft took the path of juice (slang term for anabolic steroids).

But I did gather a list of some of the most notable users:

-Arnold Schwarzenegger from 1968-1980, won Mr. Olympia seven times, admitted to previous steroid use, go figure-no pun intended.

-Upon the release of Jose Canseco’s printed paperback “Juiced,” when it hit the shelves, he named off slug kingpin Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa, as well as many other MLB players and himself for alleged abuse of performance enhancing drugs.

-Canada’s most decorated professional wrestlers, Chris Benoit murdered his wife by strangulation and did the exact brutal fate to his seven-year-old son. He finished off the job by hanging himself. From toxicology reports, there were elevated levels of testosterone in the blood stream. The names connected to steroids in that sport is astonishing, even the organization’s most notable superstars with 24-inch pythons-Hulk Hogan revealed to the public that he took steroids for years.

The NFL, UFC, MLB and athletes in recent years at the Olympics have failed test after test involved with anti-doping programs. The sad reality of the situation is it has become normal to read about these individuals who took the easy route. You scroll through a story on the Internet, so and so has tested positive. It’s expected.

What frustrates me the utmost is the males and females that eat and sleep such physical activities. Instead of putting an illegal supplement in their body, a diet regiment follows, this trail we’re talking about is far from a walk in the park. No breads, no red meats and no fried foods. They balance meals to a science.

These dedications involve very little fun time, which means no partying and little extracurricular events. This is their meaning of existence, the only thing they do is this, with the outcome of becoming a champion hopefully. It’s an obsession, so when they compete against individuals with an upper hand and lose, it breaks them down emotionally.

If and only if, after a urine or blood sample, an anti-doping agency detects that these people have broken the rules will the driven athletes know they were cheated.

Does it make them feel better? A little I guess. In the moment when they thought they lost, that feeling can never be erased. Some will say, “but the other person was stripped of their medal, or a loss is added to their record.”

Big deal.

In that specific point in time, the person who injected himself or herself with an oil based muscle builder or muscle cutter was the victor. And sadly, that’s often what everybody remembers.
