    1. 1. OlympicValues By Harry Crawford
    2. 2. Drug usethroughout theOlympic Games
    3. 3. Drug use throughout the Olympic Games Drug use dates back to even the ancient Olympics when athletes would eat lizard meatprepared in a special way. The first recorded drug use that helped the user perform was in 1904- the 3rd modern Olympics, the user was Thomas Hicks – a marathon runner. He was given 1/60of a grain (about a milligram) of strychnine and some brandy by his assistants as he was notfeeling well, and when the dose didn’t revive him they gave him another one. As a result, hecollapsed after the race – another dose may have been fatal. Back then using drugs was notagenised the rules as they didn’t realise it gives the athlete and edge on their opponents butafter they saw what happened to Thomas Hicks, they banned the drugs that he used. Nowadays drug use in prohibited in the Olympics. Part of the reason may have beenthat during the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, a cyclist competing in the road race from Danishcalled Knud Enemark Jensen fell off his bike during the race and later died. They soon found outthat the reason of his death was that he took amphetamine, which caused his unconsciousness.Jensen’s death showed the world not only how professionals are using drugs today but also howlethal they can be. 7 years later (1967) the IOC (International Olympic Committee) banned theuse of PED (Performance Enhancing Drugs). One year later (1968) during the Olympic Games in Mexico City, a Swedish pentathlete– Hans-Gunnar Liljenwall – failed his drug test and later admitted he had “a few beers” to calmhis nerves. Hans-Gunnar Liljenwall was the first athlete to be disqualified from the Olympics dueto alcohol/drug use.
