Cette image parle du problème du dopage dans le sport.  Malheureusement, la drogue exerce une influence énorme sur le sport aujourd’hui.

On constate avec inquiétude que plein de sportifs se dopent pour améliorer leurs performances et dépasser leurs limites. Ils veulent gagner à n’importe quel prix. Souvent, la pression des sponsors pousse les sportifs à se doper. Ils ont besoin de gagner pour faire de l’argent. C’est de la triche pure et simple. Ces sportifs donnent le mauvais exemple aux supporters.

En ces temps de scandales sportifs, nous avons besoin de sportifs honnêtes. C’est le devoir des associations sportives d’introduire plus de contrôles antidopage. Il faut introduire une politique de tolérance zéro envers le dopage. Cela peut paraître idiot, mais à mon avis nous devons continuer à encourager le sport amateur.  Il y a moins de pression de gagner dans le sport amateur, ce qui réduit le besoin de se doper !

En somme, il est indéniable que le dopage gâche l’esprit de sport. Il faut qu’on fasse des efforts pour changer la situation.

This picture speaks of the problem of doping in sport. Unfortunately, drugs have a huge influence on sport today.

We note with concern that many athletes are doping to improve their performance and exceed their limits. They want to win at any price. Often the pressure of sports sponsors pushes them to dope. They need to earn to make money. It’s pure and simple cheating. These athletes give the wrong example to the supporters.

In these times of sports scandals, we need honest sportsmen. It is the duty of sports associations to introduce more anti-doping controls. We must introduce a policy of zero tolerance towards doping. It may sound silly, but in my opinion we must continue to encourage amateur sport. There is less pressure to win in amateur sport, which reduces the need for doping!

In short, it is undeniable that doping spoils the spirit of sport. We must make efforts to change the situation.
