Professional athletes would be bigger than they are

This preview shows page 5 - 7 out of 7 pages.

Professional athletes would be bigger than they are now. Athletes would be faster than they are now. And lastly, athletes would be a lot stronger than they are now.

Steroids are a performance enhancing drug that will improve all professional athletes. Athletes that have used steroids illegally have been very successful in the past and have been tormented for it. These athletes that admit to using steroids affect the hopes and dreams of the youth because they are called cheaters by the entire sports world.
