Drugs in Sport


The use of drugs to improve performance in competitive sport
(known as “doping”) still occurs today, despite widespread
regulations and controls to keep sport “clean”. Witness the
case of cyclist Lance Armstrong who, in a 2013 interview with
Oprah Winfrey, finally admitted to using EPO, testosterone,
cortisone, human growth hormone and blood doping – in
various combinations – to help secure each of his seven
consecutive Tour de France wins.
While some argue that performance-enhancing drugs are
no different to new, high-tech materials found in sports
equipment and clothing that bestow a competitive edge
(such as drag-reducing swimsuits), most sports organisations,
including the International Olympic Committee, consider them
unethical. Why? Doping can be a health hazard with sometimes
fatal consequences; it gives performance-drug-taking athletes
an unfair advantage over their non-drug-taking counterparts,
thereby negating the spirit of fair play; and it gives those
sports where abuse is rife a bad name.
The practice of taking in substances to improve performance
dates back thousands of years. Competitors in the ancient
Greek Olympics used mushrooms and herbs to improve speed
and endurance. Later, in the 19th century, athletes commonly
used alcohol, opium and caffeine to up their game. The winner
of the Summer Olympics of 1904, Thomas Hicks, was revived
more than once during the race by his trainer, who each time
injected him with strychnine sulphate (a common rat poison
which stimulates the nervous system) mixed with brandy.
After winning, Hicks had to be carried off the track and may
have died had several doctors not treated him in the stadium.
At the time, strychnine and other stimulants were regarded
by the sports authorities as necessary performance aids in
demanding events.
Over time, doping fell into wide disfavour, but also became
more sophisticated and covert. Allegations of in-sport drug-
taking and even drug-related deaths (including that of British
cyclist Tommy Simpson, who overdosed on amphetamine
during the 1967 Tour de France) encouraged the International
Olympic Committee (IOC) to set up a medical commission
in 1967, which banned the use of certain drugs and other
performance-enhancing substances. Small-scale testing was
introduced at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico, followed by full-
scale testing at the next games in 1972 in Munich.

Drugs in Sport

Following a large number of doping offences committed in the
mid-1990s, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was formed
to promote and co-ordinate the fight against drugs used in
sport on an international level. It formulated the World Anti-
Doping Code – a document that sets out anti-doping rules and
procedures governing the conditions under which sport should
be played. Providing the framework for the harmonisation
of anti-doping policies and regulations across all sports and
all countries around the world, it was adopted by the South
African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) in 2005.
As the promoter and enforcer of anti-doping regulations and
policies in South Africa, SAIDS has an enormously challenging
task. It needs to ensure that organised sport stays clean – a
requirement for the national sports federations, their member
(and accredited member) bodies, and even for activities or
events affiliated to the sports federations. Not only must the
professional athlete comply with the Code, but also the sports
enthusiast who competes in such organised sporting events
as the Comrades or Cycle Tour. In the spirit of fair play and for
their own health and wellbeing, all athletes should acquaint
themselves with the South African Anti-Doping Rules.
As part of its enforcing role, SAIDS runs extensive education
as well as in- and out-of-competition testing programmes.
While the damaging effects of, for example, anabolic steroids
are widely known, even innocuous-seeming nutritional
supplements, cough mixtures or diet pills can lead users to test
positive for doping. There is no excuse; athletes are personally
responsible for any prohibited substance or its metabolites or
markers found to be present in their urine or blood samples.
Accordingly, it is not necessary that intent, fault, negligence or
knowing use on the athlete’s part be demonstrated in order to
establish an anti-doping rule violation.
Aware that steroid abuse is on the rise in South Africa, SAIDS
devised the Schools Education and Testing Programme that
was launched in 2013, to implement standardised drug-testing
at South African schools. To date, 84 schools have participated
in the Programme. Education has become a key focus of the
Programme; it plays a deterring role, ensures users are aware
of the consequences and dangers of doping, and encourages
them to stay healthy. As such, the next aim is to incorporate
anti-doping education into the Life Orientation curriculum of
the Department of Basic Education, to ensure that learners
across all schools are educated on the values of clean sport in
supporting health and wellbeing.

What is Doping?

What is Doping?

Doping is a deliberate or unintentional use by athletes of
medicines, dietary supplements (vitamin, mineral, herbal or
other nutritional preparation) or methods that may enhance
performance during a sporting event. Performance-enhancing
substances are banned in organised sport.

Deliberate doping C
Those who deliberately use performance-enhancing Y
substances to give them an edge over other competitors
in sport are engaging in deliberate doping. The penalties
for being discovered through testing can be severe; an
anti-doping rule violation in sport – whether deliberate or
not – may lead to disqualification of the result obtained in
that competition with all resulting consequences, including
forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes. Depending on
the findings of the South African Institute for Drug-Free
Sport (SAIDS), the athlete may further be banned from
participating in any sporting event for a fixed period of time –
or indefinitely.

Inadvertent (unintentional) doping CM
Inadvertent doping takes place when an athlete uses a CY
medicine to treat an illness, or takes in a food supplement or CMY
drink, without realising that it contains a banned substance. K
Consequently, the athlete returns a positive drug test result.
In this situation, even though the athlete is not taking
the substance deliberately to enhance performance, a
positive test may still result in sanctions. A policy of
strict liability exists in elite sports, whereby athletes are
responsible for any prohibited substance detected.
Ignorance is no excuse.

Some examples of medicines that contain prohibited drugs
are commonly-used cough suppressants and cold and flu
remedies. In most cases, alternative medications that do
not contain the prohibited substance can be used to treat
the illness.

Therapeutic Use Exemption

In some cases, a doctor may not be able to find an alternative
medication to treat an illness. Athletes with a documented
medical condition requiring the use of a prohibited substance
or a prohibited method may be eligible to receive a
Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) certificate from SAIDS.

Drugs in Sport
What is Doping?

If an athlete must use a medication that does contain a banned
substance for a genuine therapeutic reason, the following
steps should be taken:
 The athlete must apply to SAIDS for a Therapeutic Use

Exemption (TUE). For TUE application forms, he or she
should contact the SAIDS offices at (021) 686-1904.
 The completed application form, together with supporting
medical documentation, should be emailed to: rado-tue@ (The sender should keep a copy for
his or her records.)
 The application must be submitted for approval before
the medication regimen is required to be started. TUE
applications take approximately 30 days for the applicant
to receive an answer
 Submitting an application is not an automatic waiver to use
the medication.
 SAIDS will approve/not approve the TUE.

Drug-Testing in Sport

Drug-Testing in Sport

Drug testing – enforced by the South African Institute for
Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) – has become an increasingly large
part of both professional and amateur sports in this country.
An athlete can be called for drug-testing at any time, in- or out-
of- competition. Testing may be random or targeted.


The athlete may be notified by an official about a drug test,
and asked to sign a form acknowledging this notification. The
athlete is entitled to have a representative (such as his coach
or team doctor) present to verify that the testing occurs in
accordance with the prescribed guidelines. A urine sample of
approximately 90 ml is required (under close scrutiny of an
official of the same gender); the urine is split into two bottles,
marked A and B and sealed by the athlete. Each set of test kit
bottles has a unique code number which is recorded on the
relevant paperwork. The laboratory staff never knows the
athlete’s name; only the bottle identification number. This
ensures that the correct result is given to the athlete whilst
retaining his/her anonymity.
Following the sampling procedure, the athlete must complete
a medical declaration, which states all medicines and
substances that he or she has taken during the previous seven
days. It is important to record everything – from prescribed
drugs to over-the-counter medicines and supplements. If any
of these substances appear on the prohibited list, the athlete
must be in possession of a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).
The athlete, representative and official all check the form
before the official and athlete sign it, and both parties
hold a copy.
The samples are then sent to a laboratory accredited by
the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) where sample A is
tested. If sample A tests positive for any banned substance,
the laboratory will notify SAIDS which in turn notifies the
governing body of the sport; it in turn notifies the athlete. The
athlete may request to have his/her sample B analysed. The
athlete is entitled to be present at the opening and verification
and testing of the B sample. If this, too, is positive, the
athlete will have the opportunity to present his/her case to an
independent tribunal which will determine the merits of the
case presented by both parties, namely the athlete and SAIDS.
The independent tribunal will then decide on the matter.

Drug-Testing in Sport

Blood-testing is used to detect drugs such as human
Growth Hormone (hGH), erythropoietin (EPO) and artificial
oxygen carriers or plasma expanders. Similar anonymity
and representative procedures apply as for urine sampling
where the athlete is asked to select and check the testing and
collection equipment. Depending on the type of test required,
either one or two samples of blood are collected. Once
collected, the blood tubes are inserted directly into the A and
B sample collection bottles and sealed by the athlete. Samples
are sent to an accredited laboratory for testing.
More recently, WADA is leading the development of a strategy
against doping in sport called the Athlete Passport Program,
which is based on following an athlete's biological variables
over time. The objective of this strategy, which will be added
to other anti-doping strategies, including "traditional" testing,
is to detect abnormal variations of determined biological
variables in order to better target testing and/or sanction
those found with abnormal variations.

2017 WADA Prohibited List

The 2017 World Anti-Doping Agency
(Wada) Prohibited List

Below is an extract of the list of prohibited drugs, as detailed
by WADA, which is effective from 1 January 2017. It is valid until
further notice.
The List covers different doping classes to illustrate the doping
definition. No substances belonging to the prohibited classes
may be used even if they are not listed as examples. For this
reason, the term “and related substances” is introduced. This
term describes drugs that are related to the class by their
pharmacological actions (how the active ingredients affect the
body) or chemical structure.
Listed substances are examples and are not exhaustive, and
also include analogues of substances (substances that are
similar but not identical) and related substances.
In accordance with Article 4.2.2 of the World Anti-Doping Code,
all Prohibited Substances shall be considered as Specified

S0. Non-Approved Substances

Any pharmacological substance which is not addressed by
any of the subsequent sections of the List and with no current
approval by any governmental regulatory health authority for
human therapeutic use (eg drugs under pre-clinical or clinical
development or which have been discontinued, designer
drugs, or substances approved only for veterinary use) is
prohibited at all times.

S1.Anabolic Agents

TUE Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or
(Therapeutic conditions that require them to take particular
Use Exemption) medications.

If the medication an athlete is required to take to
treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the
Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)
may give that athlete the authorisation to take the
needed medicine.
The purpose of the International Standard for
Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE) is to ensure that
the process of granting TUEs is harmonised across
sports and countries.
For further information, go to the WADA website:
To support the decisions of TUEs regarding the use of
intravenous infusions, attention is drawn to the fact
that medical information is provided on the WADA
