Seks sebelum bertanding: manfaat atau mitos?

Jawatankuasa Sukan Olimpik London 2012 menyediakan 150,000 kondom bagi menampung keperluan aktiviti seks para atlet, pegawai dan penonton pada sepanjang kejohanan.

Memang sukar untuk memisahkan seks dengan atlet-atlet yang bertanding.  Menurut Koordinator Jabatan Sukan Universiti Mexico, Juan Carlos Medina, seks membuatkan para atlet lebih tenang. "Ia dapat mewujudkan keadaan mental dan fizikal yang lebih selesa," ujarnya, ketika diwawancara di Olimpik London 2012.


Medina memberitahu, legenda bola sepak Brazil, Pele tidak pernah turun ke padang untuk beraksi tanpa mengadakan hubungan seks terlebih dahulu. "Dia perlu bertemu dengan isterinya.  Seks membantunya lebih relaks," jelas beliau lagi.

Benarkah begitu?

Bagi pegawai perubatan  sukan, Hario Tolarso, amalan melakukan seks  sebelum satu-satu pertandingan adalah faktor kebiasaan dan budaya semata-mata. "Oleh itu, baik atau tidaknya bergantung kepada individu kerana ia hanya suatu kebiasaan. Pasukan kebangsaan Jerman misalnya, mereka dibenarkan membawa isteri atau teman lelaki ketika bertanding. Sebaliknya pasukan kebangsaan Belanda, tidak dibenarkan berbuat demikian," ujar Hario.


Mengenai dakwaan bahawa hubungan seks mampu menghilangkan stres sebelum pertandingan, Hario berpendapat ia tidak mempengaruhi kemampuan atlet.  Katanya, semua itu bergantung kepada individu dan ia tidak berlaku secara umum.

"Bahkan, melakukan seks sebelum bertanding langsung tidak memberikan kesan terhadap prestasi atlet. Hubungan seks juga tidak mempengaruhi psikologi atlet. Semuanya bergantung kepada diri masing-masing.  Jika seseorang biasa melakukannya, maka mereka akan melakukannya," tambahnya.

Di Indonesia jelas Hario, perkara ini sering disalahertikan lantaran melihat kehidupan atlet di luar negara yang ternyata lebih bebas.  Jika pemain ingin melakukan hubungan seks sebelum beraksi dalam satu pertandingan dan kemudian pulang ke markas, ia tidak akan menjadi masalah. "Namun biasanya mereka akan terus berfoya-foya  di kelab-kelab malam dan mabuk sekali gus menjejaskan prestasi mereka. Itulah masalahnya," kata beliau.

Pegawai perubatan sukan ini sering menemukan atlet yang terkena penyakit kelamin dan perlu menyuntik ubat penawarnya. Jelas Hario, hubungan seks sebelum bertanding juga tidak mempengaruhi kesihatan fizikal termasuklah pembakaran kalori.

"Ada juga kes, yang mana setelah berhubungan seks para atlet akan berasa lega dan selesa. Tapi sebenarnya seks tidak terlalu mempengaruhi keadaan fizikal, malah kalori yang dibakar juga sedikit," jelas Hario.

Di sini jurulatih harus memainkan peranan untuk memberi maklumat yang benar kepada atletnya mengenai hubungan seks sebelum bertanding.

Pemain bola sepak kelab Persema Malang yang juga bekas pemain tengah pasukan kebangsaan Indonesia, Bima Sakti, mempunyai pandangan yang sama. Dia mengakui yang hubungan seks sebelum bertanding adalah perkara biasa dan ia terpulang kepada individu. "Boleh saja jika mahu 'main' dulu. Tapi hubungan seks haruslah yang halal dan sesuai dengan tanggung jawab," katanya.

Dalam pada itu Bima mengakui bahawa kelab yang diwakilinya kini akan mengkuarantinkan pemainnya sebelum pertandingan berlangsung. Justeru katanya, tidak ada kesempatan untuk berhubungan seks.

"Secara peribadi saya berpendapat, menumpukan perhatian sebelum bertanding adalah lebih baik daripada seks. Namun jika ada pemain yang ingin melakukan hubungan seks terlebih dahulu, silakan tetapi jangan sampai menjejaskan prestasi di padang," tegas bekas kapten pasukan kebangsaan merah putih itu.

    Chelsea may field weakened team v Liverpool - Mourinho

    Chelsea could field a weakened team in their top of the table Premier League game at Liverpool on Sunday, said manager Jose Mourinho after Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid. With his second-placed side five points adrift of leaders Liverpool with only three games left, Mourinho is clearly prioritising next week's Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico over their slim Premier League title hopes. The Portuguese, however, said he would speak to the hierarchy at Chelsea before making a final decision on the team he would field at Anfield on Sunday.

    Mourinho's cautious Chelsea frustrate Atletico

    By Iain Rogers MADRID (Reuters) - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho returned to Spain with an ultra-cautious approach as his team earned a 0-0 draw with surprise Champions League semi-finalists Atletico Madrid in a first leg lacking in excitement on Tuesday. The stalemate at the Vicente Calderon, which Atletico coach Diego Simeone believes gives Chelsea a slight advantage in next week's return at Stamford Bridge, came at a cost for the 2012 winners, however. Goalkeeper Petr Cech was ruled out for the season after hurting his elbow, captain John Terry limped off with an ankle injury and midfielders Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel earned bookings that mean they are suspended for the second leg.

    Analysis - United must move fast with vital window looming

    By Ed Osmond LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester United must move quickly to appoint a new manager and give him maximum time to operate in what will be a critical transfer window for the club. A season of abject failure under David Moyes brought a swift end to the former Everton manager's reign at Old Trafford and United will have to act equally decisively to install the right man to try to revive their fortunes. Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal is the favourite and he has the necessary experience and record of success. Carlo Ancelotti of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund's Juergen Klopp have also been linked with the job, although the German appeared to rule himself out of contention on Tuesday.

    Man United act to halt slide as power shifts back to Liverpool

    By Keith Weir LONDON (Reuters) - The balance of power in English football has shifted from one famous U.S.-owned club to another, with Liverpool on course to win the league for the first time in 24 years while rivals Manchester United are in disarray and seeking a new manager. The Glazer family who own United showed their ruthless streak on Tuesday when they sacked manager David Moyes after less than one season in the job. Moyes inherited a Premier League-winning team from Alex Ferguson last year but a dismal campaign means United will miss out on a place in the UEFA Champions League - Europe's top club competition - next season for the first time since 1995. Failing to qualify will cost United upwards of 30 million pounds next year but the Glazers will have been prompted to act by fears of a long barren streak of the kind from which Liverpool are emerging.

    By Iain Rogers MADRID (Reuters) - Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will miss the rest of the season after landing heavily and injuring his right elbow in Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first leg. Captain John Terry will also be sidelined for the last three Premier League games of the campaign after twisting his ankle in the second half but he could be fit for next month's Champions League final in Lisbon if Chelsea get through. Czech Republic international Cech was replaced by 41-year-old Mark Schwarzer in the 18th minute at the Vicente Calderon after Atletico midfielder Raul Garcia took a tumble and felled the keeper at a corner.
