Performance Enhancing Substances in Sport

Some athletes will go to extreme lengths to achieve success and the rewards that follow, including the use of legal and illegal performance enhancing substances. This interview-led programme will explore: the use of legal ergogenic aids, illegal drugs in sport, drug testing in sport, consequences of doping, and the Olympics and doping. We talk with research scientist Dr Alan Brailsford from the 2012 Olympics anti-doping team, Olympic and Paralympics athletes and coaches, and a sports nutritionist. Suitable for physical education and health related studies at senior high school and TAFE level, the production explores the adverse effects doping can have on health, personal reputation and the sport, as well as factors that motivate athletes to take such risks.
