Numerous professional athletes acquired steroids and other doping products from the Miami anti-aging clinic Biogenesis. The famous baseball stars Alex Rodriquez, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon also belonged to individuals who bought steroids at this clinic.
What is uncommon here? - Nothing. Steroids and other related preparations are widely used in baseball and in other sports. Athletes purchase these medications at pharmacies, clinics, etc. A lot of anti-ageing clinics, drug manufacturers and other related establishments distribute anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs illegally. Biogenesis is not the only clinic that is involved in illicit operations linked with anabolic steroids and other prescription products. Athletes find various ways to purchase anabolic steroids and other related medicines and use them. However anti-doping officials try to eradicate doping from sports, their efforts are not successful.
Do you consider that anti-doping agencies don’t work enough well? Do you mean that they should establish more sophisticated drug testing policies? Do you think that they don’t do their job properly?
It is needed to realize that no any drug testing program is capable to eliminate doping from sports totally. Athletes find several ways to avoid detection. Doping is a part of sports. It exists from ancient time. Even ancient Greeks and Romans had several methods to increase their performance to win. Will athletes discontinue using anabolic steroids and other related medications now?
Certain athletes buy undetectable medications and administer them. Moreover, they hire specialists that supply them with recommendations on administration of steroids and/or other performance-enhancing drugs. Thus, certain sportspersons have unfair advantage over others. Anti-doping officials can’t change the situation. They are not capable to make sports “clean”. What is it necessary to do under such circumstances? It is probably needed to legalize doping in professional sports. Thus, anyone will be permitted to administer whatever he/she desires. As a result, no any athlete will have unfair advantage over another.
But since steroids and other related preparations are prohibited in sports, athletes try to find ways to buy and apply these drugs, avoiding detection. When it becomes evident that certain athletes dope, scandals are reported.
