Introduction

Conclusion

She has frequently made high-profile condemnations of performance-enhancing drugs in athletics, most famously at the World Athletics Championships in Edmonton in 2001 when Radcliffe and team-mate Hayley Tullett held up a sign protesting against the reinstatement of Russian athlete Olga Yegorova, after Yegorova had tested positive for the banned substance EPO. Radcliffe also wears a red ribbon when competing to show her support for blood testing as a method of catching drugs cheats. Kelly Holmes won 2 gold Olympic medals for the 800m and 1500m. Holmes spreads testing awareness, this helps kids fully understand the entire drug testing process realising there is no mistake. She hopes that it will help children with their ambitions to reach high levels in sports. These two women are both strong minded women. They both enjoy there sport which is running or sprinting and both achieve high levels of standards and hard work. This is a good role model for youngsters, as it shows with effort and training you can achieve what you want. Both these women also campaign on the anti doping and use of drugs, promoting healthy lifestyles again making children realise drugs are bad and wrong. ?? ?? ?? ?? - 1 - ...read more.
