Keeping sports clean is necessary to protect the accomplishments of the athletes who built the sport and to protect the current athletes who are clean.

Going further, and beyond the momentary lapse into solipsism in some of the above messages, maintaining integrity amongst competitors in the highest levels of sport is of substance to those who find importance in instilling this value in future generations, which may find dramatic and irreparable harm at a more formative age through abusing substances, which the idols in sport are said or even known to use, all in the pursuit of improved performance and competitiveness in a society that too often exalts victory in the arena far above all else.
