Hey all, I'm writing a really cool presentation for class, regarding steroids, history, and ethics in sports. It will engulf much of the following (that I have time for)
Killing Sacred Cows:
The Lyle Alezedo myth
Chris Benoit murders family and head trauma
Why Ben Johnson got screwed out of his gold medal
The falsity of "clean competition" pre drug testing
Why Drug test sports?
-Are steroids dangerous
Is drug testing fair in sports?
Who benefits drug testing
-Who is Dick Pound? Who is WADA?
Benefits of prescription drugs
-Ethics of using them non-prescribed (academically + athletically)
Low T and Steroids
-Quality of life and performance
Attack on testosterone (AKA Why the Fuck is the WNBA on TV?)
Anyhow, if people off the top of their heads know any important resources reguarding any of these topics let me know. I already know some great ones in:
-Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (The Side Effects of Being American)
-Speed Trap by Charlie Francis
-Charlie Francis' articles on T-Nation
-HBO real sports interview
-TC Luoma's Atomic Dog articles
The biggest thing I'm looking for is if there's a graph showing % improvement in word records set between like 1950 and 2000 or later?
Need legitimate and rational preferably web (free e-book works too) sources on steroid and drug testing ethics in sports. Not asking you to do my assignment for me, as I'm already very involved in it.
