A tale of Eight Sprinters: Two got away, One Hero, One Villain and the Dubious Taste of Shame
January 13, 2021
Hosted by Nav. C with Co-Host Nav.M
In this episode we focus on the stark contrast in fate between two Olympic arch rivals in the 1988 Mens Olympic 100m final. The epic showdown between Ben Johnson & Carl Lewis brought mass media attention to the hidden problem of performance enhancing drugs (PED’s) at the highest level of competitive sport. It was made famous for all the wrong reasons such as scandal, cheating and a probe into sporting ethics. However what is often forgotten is the human tragedy of Ben Johnson’s story, as he returned to Canada labeled a drug cheat, a career in tatters and morally condemned by Canadian society In this episode we explore a brief history behind cheating in sports, the psychology behind cheating, a brief background to PED’s, the ethics behind the debate and we examine the most common argument used to define drug use in sport, that it represents a form of cheating. It’s true that History is always written by the winners and so it is, that abandoned heroes can also rewrite their legacies.

To achieve this requires a sense of balance, a mirrored connection between the two parts. We are intertwined with our audience, one cannot exist without the other.
