Should the International Olympic Committee establish a new set of Olympic-style events for competitors that have ever taken or are currently taking performance enhancing drugs?

Should the International Olympic Committee establish a new set of Olympic-style events for competitors that have ever taken or are currently taking performance enhancing drugs?
  • A level playing field

    At this point, performance enhancing drugs are gaining traction even with all of the regulations against them, so rather than banning these athletes outright, it would be a perfectly logical idea to create a handicap or provide new events for those who are currently taking these drugs. It is, after all, a competition.

  • Olympic Committee Should Establish Events for Enhancement Takers

    Yes, the IOC should establish a new set of Olympic-Style events for competitors that have taken or are taking performance enhancement drugs as this would be a fair way of showing off those competitors' skills, and it would surely be a hit amongst the general populace, who would like to see near super human displays of prowess,

  • No they should not

    Maybe they should stick to their conventional style of competitions instead of adding on more styles because they are confusing enough as it is and if they are having a problem with trying to balance out those two groups then maybe they should just make performance enhancing drugs mandatory for all athletes.

  • New Olympic-style events should not be established for athletes that take performance enhancing drugs.

    New Olympic-style events would complete with existing events and, likely, be costly. Rather, if the problem of performance enhancing drugs has become such a problem that there are enough athletes prevented from participating in traditional Olympic events, then the International Olympic Committee should re-evaluate the list of performance enhancing drugs that are permissible and consider adding a of the more widely used ones.

  • No, that is not sport.

    No, the International Olympic Committee should not establish a new set of Olympic-style events for competitors that have or are taken performance enhancing drugs, because that would be equal to endorsing the use of these substances. These substances are not good for sport. They are not in the true spirit of athletics.

  • No They Should Not

    I believe the Olympics are about fair competitions that elicit some of the best physical fitness known to man, this should not be sullied with performance-enhancing drugs. If someone wants events for athletes that do use these drugs, then they should create their own events or league, so as not to tarnish our current events and leagues.

  • The International Olympic Committee should not establish a new set of events for the users of performance enhancing drugs

    The International Olympic Committee should not establish a new set of events for the users of performance enhancing drugs. These competitors should be banned from any type of professional event not rewarded with their own events. It is wrong to win by using drugs and it wrong to encourage the use of drugs by all competitors in order to compete.
