Background and Context of Debate:

Arguement 1

Yes

If the drugs are enhancing their performance, this is not fair. If in a major event, such as the Olympics, one of the eight competitors are on performance enhancing drugs, not only are they illegal, but they are cheating. If they win, It may be from the effect the drug(s) had on the person.

This is not fair for the other athletes and it shouldn't be allowed. To stop this, a lifetime ban would make the athletes fearful of using drugs and therefore if they were already using them, they would stop.

If this was introduced and the drug using atlete kept using drugs, they wouldn't be able to play again, a fair punishment and they wouldn't have the opportunity to cheat again.
