Drug abuse in sport. Silhouette of an athlete lifting dumbbells & facing a drug-filled syringe, in an abstract depiction of illegal drug abuse in sport. Illegal stimulant drugs prevent sport fatigue and they raise self-confidence. While anabolic steroids speed the recovery of muscles after strenuous exercise; this permits a more demanding training schedule and increases muscle bulk and strength. The use of drugs to improve athletic performance has been condemned and made illegal because it endangers the health of athletes and gives drug users an unfair advantage.
