We say that one must be fair in sports, but how fair does one really play? ‘Doping’ refers to the use of banned performance-enhancing drugs by sportsmen. This is not a new culture but something which has its roots way back in history. In ancient Rome, chariot race became a really trendy sport, to get an edge the participants used to consume drinks made up of herbs which gave them extra strength. The usage of drugs and steroids is considered to be unethical by many organizations as it gives an upper hand to the player who has consumed it and a disadvantage for others. It is considered to be hampering with the ‘’spirit of sports’’. International Olympic Committee has been regulating the use of stimulants to avoid any health risks and inequality of opportunity for other players.
