Over time, the norms and principles of sport have not been fulfilled as they should be in their ideal genesis. Hence, doping is today, more than ever, a very investigated and commented topic. Although current, this problem is not recent and has extended over the last decades. However, because it is somewhat "settled" there is the idea that there is a universal definition of doping, which does not correspond to the truth.
The purpose of this article is to find the best definition for the understanding of doping, as well as to describe some cases where this was and is used. It is also the purpose of this investigation to identify in detail the substances that are classified as doping between athletes and the forms of control and combat by international organizations to fight against doping.
The methodology used for the elaboration and enrichment of this work was a bibliographical research, through scientific articles, using reliable sources and the most recent possible, in the databases: ACM Digital Library, ACS - Physics Institute, B-ON Library and Google Scholar.
On the basis of this article it was possible to conclude that the use of drugs in sport has been increasing, and some of these prohibited and illicit substances cannot be detected in the tests that are done before the tests. Some sportspeople have consumed a lot of illegal substances, leading many of them to death, with many reasons being pointed out: improvement of physical performance, pressure to which they are exposed in the face of supporters and sponsors, personal fulfillment or family influence, among others. Decision to consume illicit substances easier. Often even these are provided by the sponsors or clubs who want to reach a certain level that leverages the economic and financial gains.Pages: 74-80 | 456 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
