The U.S. House of Representatives is considering taking drastic measure to curtail doping in international athletic competition.

A bill introduced on the House floor on Tuesday intends to criminalize the use of performance enhancing drugs at international events. The bill seeks to threaten users, manufacturers and distributors of banned substances with a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Athletes competing in events such as the Olympics, World Cup, World Baseball Classic and Ryder Cup could be under scrutiny.
