Athletes and their use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) have been back in the headlines again recently. Baseball stars with drug accusation baggage were snubbed in Hall of Fame voting. Cyclist Lance Armstrong (right) made a very public confession to Oprah Winfrey after years of strong denials. And now Alex Rodriguez (center), who has already confessed to using steroids from 2001 to '03, and other prominent baseball players are allegedly listed in the records of an anti-aging clinic in Miami that detail performance-enhancing drugs administered to them and others, according to a report. In addition, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis may have used a banned substance while rehabbing from a torn triceps injury this year according to Sports Illustrated.
Here is a roundup of how other professional athletes have reacted after their names were brought up as having used performance-enhancing drugs.
