Why I took the pledge:
I believe wholeheartedly in the spirit of a level playing field, testing your innate physical skills and fortitude of mind and spirit, all within the common goal of being the best you can naturally. This is not WWE, there are not millions up for grabs. I’m sorry some did not earn enough ribbons, medals, trophies, or parts on the back from their parents. But I deplore those that decide that cheating will cure all their insecurities. I can’t imagine how cheating serves any individual, sport, or community of athletes.
