In many occasions, if the training is intensive, the athletes do involve themselves in drugs. This is contrary to the sporting rules that dictate no athlete at any one time should be allowed to compete or participate in the competition under drugs influence (Wiggins 91). Therefore, athletes are usually tested to see if they have elements of drugs in their body, this is meant to create a uniform platform under which the winner can be picked.
