Doping is the use of stimulants to enhance performance. Some forms of doping are prohibited in sports, unless a prescription allows it for medical reasons.  

4 reasons why doping occurs 

  1. The astronomical increase in scholarships and salaries 
  2. Athletes in certain disciplines are receiving higher and higher salaries, which makes the prospect of a career in high performance sport increasingly attractive.   
  3. The demands of high-performance sport  
  4. They continue to increase. Records are continually being broken, raising the standards by which athletes are measured.
