Doping and the use of performance-enhancing drugs(PEDs) have been in the news a lot lately. From Major League Baseball’s Biogenesis scandal to the multiple violations in the track and field world, it seems today’s athletes aren’t content on relying on their God-given talents alone in their respective sports.
That being said, we have seen many doping scandals over the years, and have compiled a list of the top 10 doping incidents that rattled the sports world.
10. Jose Canseco took steriods in his baseball career and in February 2005, he released his tell-all, Juiced, Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In the book, he snitched on several other players saying he personally injected them, including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi.
9. Tyson Gay recently tested positive for PEDs. This is sad because he is tied with sprinter Yohan Blake as the second fastest man ever to run the 100-meter-dash, behind Usain Bolt. One has to wonder whether he was he juiced up when he ran the race in 9.69 seconds.
