Doping Issue Discussion needs Bigger Platform

Doping Issue Discussion needs Bigger Platform

When 3% of the high school boys are found to be taking doping drugs, then it would not be wrong to say that the issue has become a matter of concern than being confined to the four walls of sports.

Dr. Timothy Armstrong from the World Health Organization (WHO) was of the view that when the problem has become so big then it is important it should also be dealt accordingly. He affirmed that the matter has been considered in the category of serious matter by the WHO and World-Anti-Doping Agency.

Armstrong, who was present at a conference being organized by the Arne Ljungqvist Foundation, was of the view that the WHO and the World-Anti-Doping Agency should come forth and take some strict actions.

He affirmed that it is the first time that the matter of doping has been raised on such a platform and the only reason of doing the same is to find a solution for the problem. In addition, international authorities have said that they will find some common ways out. However, for that they need to come together and discuss the issue.

It is vital that teenagers should be made aware that such drugs do no benefit. Neither it has done any benefit to sportsmen, who have taken them and nor it will provide them any sort of benefit.
