Some athletes will go to extreme lengths to achieve success and the rewards that follow, including the use of legal and illegal performance enhancing substances. This interview led program will explore: the use of legal ergogenic aids, illegal drugs in sport, drug testing in sport, consequences of doping, and the Olympics and doping. We talk with research scientist Dr Alan Brailsford from the 2012 Olympics anti-doping team, Olympic and Paralympics athletes and coaches, and a sports nutritionist. Suitable for physical education and health related studies at senior high school and TAFE level, the production explores the adverse effects doping can have on health, personal reputation and the sport, as well as factors that motivate athletes to take such risks.

Elite athletes employ simple strategies and techniques to improve performance. How better to gain an insight into these tried-and-tested methods, than to hear directly from the elite athletes and coaches themselves? This insightful program takes us trackside to the training grounds of eight sportspeople from around the world, who share their personal insights and stories of performance training. We learn how to plan an effective training schedule and discuss the importance of psychological preparation. We also discuss the risks involved in performance enhancing drugs, and the benefits that current advances in sports technology bring to athletic performance and measurement.

The basis of good nutrition is balance: our intake needs to be balanced with our needs. Physical exercise increases the need for all the essential nutrients, particularly energy-giving fuels and water. In developing a nutritional plan, we need to be aware of the composition of different foods, and the demands placed on our bodies by different types of exercise. If we choose to use nutritional supplements, it's important to understand the potential pros and cons.
