If that story sounds familiar, like perhaps one you´ve heard on TV or in magazines concerning modern-day steroid use in sports, it should. Athletes´ today- especially professional athletes- have very lucrative contracts and sponsorship deals, and steroids are known to enhance performance, reduce and repair injuries, and lengthen careers. So it should be no surprise to most people that when Dr.Ziegler returned from the World Weightlifting Championships, he immediately began researching testosterone and trying to develop something better for his Athletes.
The story of steroid use in sports began just before the World Weightlifting Championships of 1954. http://www.steroid.com/steroids-in-sports.php
- I was watching CBS Sunday Morning: one of the stories was on Steroids. Its in the news daily. Is steroids wrong! And why now does the culture deside that these building up of the body now is wrong?
- Did Mark McGuire use steroids? Would you vote for him for the Hall of Baseball?
- Did Roger Clements use steroids? And!
- Has our culture caused athletics to use of body building drugs so athletics can get the edge in sports today?
