The term Doping refers to the use of "performance-enhancing drugs" in order to gain a competitive edge in sporting events. Doping is widely viewed as unethical by most sporting organizations and many organizations dole out heavy penalties against participants found to be engaging in the practice. Doping can take many forms, including the use of steroids, amphetamines, and medically unnecessary blood transfusions, to name a few.
