DOPING In order to enhance their performance, sportsmen use specific ‘methods’ that optimize the qualities needed for their sport, on the basis of various physiological, biological, psychological factors.
According to a widespread opinion, ‘upstream’ doping, used for the above-mentioned aim, is ‘bad’ and should be distinguished from ‘downstream’ or ‘good’ doping, meant to help athletes recover their physiological and biological balance. In fact, both types of doping are complementary, since they artificially boost the body's abilities, the second type of doping aiming to make up for the negative effects of the former.
