Sound-off

“What would you say to award-winning cyclist Lance Armstrong, who recently admitted to taking PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs)?”

Wildcats Today staff spoke to Dunwoody High School athletes to find out their opinion.

“I mean, to me, it’s just cycling, but if it was basketball then it’s a bigger story. Using makes you and everyone around you forget about the previous athletes that did it first without the drugs. If you get to that level of being competitive, then there’s more of a chance that you’ll want to use. But I can see why people do it.”
Nate Welsh, freshman, basketball
“I think he’s stupid; of course it was cheating. He got famous for winning Tour de France, then we find out he was cheating. I lost all my respect for him. Go seniors! Don’t do steroids. All they care about is winning.”
Emma Fincher, senior, lacrosse
“I personally wouldn’t use; it wouldn’t be worth the risk and dishonor of your country. I feel a lot of athletes use drugs, but it’s not okay. It can increase your heart rate, and you can die.”
Nondi Dunn, sophomore,
basketball
