Is this a losing battle?

Being a professional sportsperson is far more attractive to youngsters than it did 15 years ago. Today there is so much money in being a professional through sponsors, endorsements, prize money, appearance fees etc. The pressures and expectations from the sponsor, coach, manager, club, province, country and many more is enormous.

So when I a set about the work I do to empower youngsters against the temptations that come in the professional sports arena these days in the forms of Steroids, drugs, money, sex, betting, match fixing etc, I wonder if I am swimming upstream and losing a huge battle.

Do you think there is hope?
