I’m sure some people want to see disc golf in the olympics. Some of those people are not me.

Can someone who knows what they’re talking about chine in on what kind of advantage can be gained in our sport by various PEDs?

You mean a banned substance I think. Which is also subjective and dependent on whichever governing body of whatever sport you are talking about.

The supplements themselves are by definition performance enhancers.

Also, this is silly. Im not sure if that was really the message of the quote in the OP, but if that is what they are aiming for, good luck

Someone who is abusing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clenbuterol would have an advantage on hilly courses, not being so winded and out of breath when stepping up to a lie after walking up a very steep hill, but rather breathing easily. They would feel a bit less fatigued in the closing holes of an otherwise long round on a particularly long or arduous course, too, or in the final round of a long tournament.

Just as an example.

edit: My PEDs of choice are caffeine, sugar, and painkillers -- I wash down a fistful of ibuprofen with bottles of Coca-Cola! =D

Beta blockers can reduce the amount of adrenaline in the body...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_b...-enhancing_use

Quote:
Because they promote lower heart rates and reduce tremors, beta blockers have been used in professional sports where high accuracy is required, including archery, shooting, golf[28] and snooker.[28] Beta blockers are banned by the International Olympic Committee.[29] In the 2008 Summer Olympics, 50-metre pistol silver medalist and 10-metre air pistol bronze medalist Kim Jong-su tested positive for propranolol and was stripped of his medals.

Amphetamines could also give someone an edge.

I hope not. It would be a shame if our sport already has a ped problem.

There are frequent jokes on the live chat about McBeastmode actually being McAdderallmode...
