Synopsis

This book argues that cheating destroys the integrity of sports, athletes, and coaches. It examines major topics such as performance-enhancing substances, negative impact of marketers, and accountability. What we need in society is more character and less emphasis on winning. We need less disruption of what athletics should be about and, therefore, the sports supplement industry cannot be allowed to corrupt the minds of athletes or their coaches. This requires having coaches with integrity. It requires commitment from all others involved, particularly the sports nutritionists, the trainers, and the medical profession to not allow the use of any performance- enhancing substance. This book speaks to these points with timely concern about the health and wellbeing of athletes of all ages. The material should help everyone involved in athletics, especially parents and the sports nutrition consultants to think right about sports. It emphasizes the simple fact that the truly happy athlete finds comfort not in cheating, but from knowing that the pursuit of athletics is 100 per cent a function of his or her own doing.
