Olympic sports may be defined as the specific activity of certain effects on the national policies and socio-economic situations. Competitive accomplishments in modern sports require high investments although they promote the nations, their images and improve the national positions for qualifications for the next Olympic Games. Analysis of the modern theoretical and practical literature on the doping issues in elite sports shows that many sport specialists, coaches and elite athletes believe that the modern Olympic movement is in serious crisis since the IOC, WADA and other international sports agencies pursue discriminatory policies disguised by the statutory anti-doping activity to marginalize national Olympic teams to simplify competitions for the US and other allies.
Moreover, the national teams of France, Germany, Finland, the USA and some other countries widely use medical certificates of fake respiratory diseases in the teams to openly use prescribed doping agents. This biased attitudes and fraud in the international sports has forced the Olympic movement on the brink of destruction.
This article discusses the current situation for the modern Olympic Games; growing WADA control and monopoly in the Olympic movement; and the growing control of the modern Olympic sports by vested political and financial interests. It analyzes the reasons for the prohibited pharmacological agents widely used in sports and their destructive effects; and solutions offered by the leading physical education and sport specialists to put the Olympic movement back on track of its basic humanistic values and doping-free competitions. It is proposed to have these issues broadly discussed by elite athletes, coaches and sport therapists to highly qualified athletes, coaches and sports doctors to help clean the sports from doping. The Olympic values and ideals need to be reset to facilitate further humanization of modern society.

Key words: Olympic movement, doping control, resetting, modern Olympic values .
