History of Doping in Track and Field

European Athletics CHAMPIONSHIPS is organized every two years by the IAAF. They are one of the major sporting events. How about the use of doping substances in athletics?

Doping will stop

Doping

There is a double standard when it comes to doping and sport. On the one hand, it is expected that the athletes are better than the “regular” people. On the other hand, play a role in economic interests.
The most important doping substances are:

  • Anabolic steroids
  • amphetamine
  • EPO
  • Growth hormones
  • blood doping
    Harm Kuipers, ex-world Speedskating and professor of exercise physiology at Maastricht, has a different opinion about doping.Journalists, cyclists, soigneurs, cycling officials and the public, it seems no one has noticed that most medications do not improve, but lowers the performance of an athlete. Take amphetamines, doping of the generation of Jacques Anquetil and Joop Zoetemelk. A cyclist taking amphetamines, go slower. Kuipers: “I’ve used it myself as an experiment and then I sit on an exercise bike. It was double-blind and placebo-controlled, and I do not know if I amphetamines or placebo. When the results were analyzed, I turned to amphetamines 3-4 per cent have biked so hard. “So who wins a contest and then gets stuck on the use of amphetamines, according to Kuipers, internationally recognised anti-doping expert, actually given an extra medal. Most of the resources that are on the doping list, have a similar negative effect.
