(Sports)Tokyo Pledges "model" Drug-Free


     Tokyo is promising to be the 2020 Olympic Games with the world's strictest anti-doping rules. The city has received widespread praise for a bid that promises highly compact and environmentally friendly games in a city with an already well-developed infrastructure. According to the Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA), only 40 cases of doped athletes have been discovered in Japan since 2007. However, the US Anti-Doping Agency website shows that there were 37 doping violations in the US in 2012 alone. Richard Budgett said that aim of holding a doping-free Olympics was a noble one.


     I think that we should all play fair, whether it is in games or tournaments. We must have good sportsmanship. After a match when we lose, we should reflect on our own mistakes and learn from them instead of blaming your teammates and get into a argument.
