1. World famous boxer Oscar De La Hoya was involved in the scandal after unflattering picture of him had appeared everywhere showing the boxer in bras, stockings, short skirts and women's underwear. He made a vain attempt to get the matter settled, by announcing a statement saying that the photos were altered. Later he confessed that all pictures were real. De la Hoya blamed his adventures in drag on cocaine and alcohol. 
What is your own opinion of such behavior?

2. Modern world already does not consider professional sport without doping scandals. All major sport events are described as "a pharmacological trade show". Together with the medals and titles came the negative health side effects, such as liver cancer, organ damage, psychological defects, hormonal changes and infertility.
