TIM MONTGOMERY Tim Montgomery was accused of doping by the United States Anti- Doping Agency. The American Anti-Doping Committee imposed a suspension of four years to Montgomery. In 2005 he was convicted and was stripped of all results and trophies from March the 31 in 2001, including his world record. Now he is in a prison in Alabama. He consumed these substances to perform at high levels and be able to get new brands.
IF I’AM A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE… I would use drugs to win all competitions, have a lot of money and to perform at high levels, without anyone knowing about it. I think if I always use drugs I always will win and I will become an famous athlete and be recognized for everyone. I had make sure first no one knew about it. If the other people would use drugs I wouldnt tell anything because I used, too but if they win I would tell it because I always want to win and be the best.
REFORM OF ATHLETICS Doping is destroying some sports and is bad for the health of athletes. They have to control more people from athletics to not consume these substances. They have to disqualify the people who play unfaily. People who use drugs must stop taking drugs and eat healthier foods. People who have already taken drugs may not participate in a championship never. People who have taken drugs can’t have any medals and they won’t be recognized.
