It’s nice to see world class athletes getting into the act when it comes to PED’s and other performance-enhancement substances. At least that is what came out of the Washington Post PostSports section where they published the article Long jump great Mike Powell asks for life ban on doping offenders by the Associated Press.
In it Powell is quoted as saying, “I think if you are using drugs, you should be banned for life.”
Quotes from Powell throughout the article demonstrate his tough stand on these substances as he seems to take responsibility for making a difference, along with placing high expectations on athletics, and through inference athletes, to eliminate illegal performance-enhancing practices.
Again, it’s nice to see someone of his caliber take a stand on this issue. Now if we can just get a few hundred more.
