Peta Bee, MSc Biography

Freelance sports and medicine journalist
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Performance-Enhancing Drugs Be Accepted in Sports?"

“Perhaps the greatest benefits to be obtained from many banned substances are not that they build bulk but that they speed up recovery from training, increase fast-twitch muscle fibre and enable those who use them to achieve a greater physical output from the same amount of effort in training. Surely these are effects that are potentially as helpful in golf as in other sports, particularly as it becomes a more athletic game.”
