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.

    Bale stunner claims Cup win for Real over Barca

    Gareth Bale raced away to score a stunning late winner as Real Madrid made light of the absence of top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to beat arch-rivals Barcelona 2-1 to win a riveting King's Cup final on Wednesday. Wales winger Bale, who joined Real for a world record fee in the close season, galloped down the left wing into the penalty area in the 85th minute at Valencia's Mestalla stadium and slipped the ball superbly between the legs of Barca goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto. Angel Di Maria had put Real ahead in the 11th minute in the 228th meeting between the two sides when he finished off a swift break with a low shot that Pinto could only palm into the net before Marc Bartra headed in from Xavi's corner in the 68th to make it 1-1.

    Suarez out to torment struggling Norwich again

    By Josh Reich LONDON (Reuters) - It would be a brave gambler who wagered against Luis Suarez becoming the first Liverpool player to score 30 goals in a Premier League season when the leaders head to struggling Norwich City on Sunday (1100 GMT). The Uruguayan has played a major role in taking Liverpool - two points clear of Chelsea with four games left - to the brink of their first league title since 1990, with his 29 league goals one better than Robbie Fowler's previous club best in the Premier League era. He is also two goals shy of equalling the Premier League 38-game season record held by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo.

    By Michael Hann LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City's Premier League title hopes were dealt a crushing blow when they were held to a 2-2 draw by bottom club Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Everton suffered a shock 3-2 home defeat by mid-table Crystal Palace at Goodison Park to put a huge dent in their bid for a top-four finish. City, champions in 2012 and runners-up to neighbours Manchester United last season, failed to respond to their 3-2 defeat at leaders Liverpool on Sunday and stayed third in the table on 71 points from 33 matches, six behind Liverpool and four adrift of Chelsea with only one game in hand.

    Real Madrid fans jam streets to celebrate Cup win

    Thousands of cheering Real Madrid fans welcomed their team back to the Spanish capital early Thursday after winning the Copa del Rey with a 2-1 victory over arch rivals Barcelona. Supporters, many wrapped in the club's flag, cheered as the squad arrived at Madrid's central Cibeles Square, the traditional home for raucous Real Madrid victory celebrations, in a white open-topped bus with the word "champions" written in black letters on its sides. Fans applauded Real goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas as, following tradition, he leant over the side of the bus and wrapped a Madrid insignia and club scarf around the statue of the Roman goddess that adorns a fountain in the square. "Winning the cup is fantastic, winning against Barcelona is even better," said Ezequiel Munoz, a 20-year-old student who came to the square with a group of friends after the match.
