Doping, or using a substance to enhance performance, is nothing new. Contrary to romantic notions about the purity of Olympic sports, ancient Greeks ingested special drinks and potions to give them an edge, and at the 1904 Games, athletes downed potent mixtures of cocaine, heroin and strych- nine.
The original intent of anti-doping rules was to prevent athletes from dropping dead of overdoses, but over the years the rules have come to focus just as intently on protecting the integrity of the Games.
The goal of Test Me I’m Clean is to be not a campaign, but a way of life. Founded by Olympic medalist Dee Dee Trotter, Test Me I’m Clean is dedicated to making a stand once and for all against dishonest athletes by encouraging athletes of all ages to stay clean while they strive greatness.
Concussions are more prevalent in sports today. NFL had approximately 300 reported concussions last season, while the NHL documented 262.
Do we know more about concussions? Is this a growing trend or are we more aware of it?
Dee Dee Trotter, originally scheduled as tonights guest, was unavailable for this program.
