Transcript Athletes command a unique position in American society and in societies throughout the world. Many view the athlete as a hero who strives for perfection. The public expects excellence, and to achieve these high standards and thereby maintain public favor, the athlete must maintain peak alertness, responsiveness, efficiency and coordination. A small segment of the athlete population has resorted to the use of drugs (e.g., anabolic steroids, amphetamines and various "street drugs") purported to improve physical performance. The decision to use drugs to improve physical performance, for the most part, has not been based on sound information and could have dire physical consequences for involved individuals. Further, such usage violates NCAA ethical principles. The ethics of sport need to be emphasized, particularly in that taking drugs to improve performance constitutes cheating. There is need to reemphasize the fact that the important thing in sport is to compete honorably; to win at all costs is a contradiction to the meaning of sport. The athlete should not carry all the blame for the situation. Coaches, trainers and the medical profession need to share some of this burden, as does the public, for expecting and frequently demanding a winning effort every time. Society has placed a number of demands upon the athlete. If one believes that athletes and the general public will make sound judgments most of the time when provided with the necessary information, educating athletes and others about drug effects, appropriate drug use and the skills needed to cope with such problems could have substantial benefits to the individual and to society. The NCAA has produced a pamphlet entitled "Drugs and the Athlete...a losing combination," which includes the latest and best information available on the problem of solving drugs in sports. To order, send $3 for 12 copies to: NCAA Publishing, P.O. Box 1906, Mission, Kansas 66201.
