Drug Use Widespread in Australian Sport

By Golfrefugees

"The use of substances, including peptides, hormones and illicit drugs, is widespread amongst professional athletes. We are talking about multiple athletes across a number of sports. We're talking about a number of teams.
The findings indicate the drugs are being facilitated by sports scientists, coaches, support staff as well as doctors and pharmacists. In some cases, sports scientists and others are orchestrating the doping of entire teams. In some cases, players are being administered substances which have not yet been approved for human use."
The report said that organised crime was involved 
in the distribution of the drugs, which exposes players to the possibility of being co-opted into match-fixing.
