contemporary issues?

for our degree one of the units has asked us to look at social aspects in sport for this we are doing a presentation and have to include and talk about some contemporary issues.
 
problem is everyone is talking about the same stuff....richard keyes/andy grey sexism,  cricket scandel, the gay rugby player coming out..
 
we really wanna do something different and more interesting to read about anyone any ideas? maybe something in bodybuilding or powerlifting??
 
thanks

    If I was you, I would do it on the divide between the equipped and unequipped ('raw') categories in modern powerlifting, and possibly incorporate something to do with the laxity of most equipped federations regarding depth of squatting, etc. as a result. It is an issue that is on the forefront of the sport at the moment and is really dividing it, so might be worth looking into. You'd want to be somewhat interested in powerlifting though.
     
    Or possibly something to do with the state of British weightlifting at the moment and the fact that you have very few decent lifters, and that there are actually British sprinters who can lift more on the olympic lifts than some guys on the British weightlifting team. This could be good because the Olympics is coming up soon and it's in London obviously so it's very relevant.
     
    Or an old cliche, steroids in bodybuilding?
     
    EDIT: I just re-read your post and noticed that you said "social aspects" in sport, which sort of nullifies all of my suggestions. Hmm...
