This article addresses the controversial issue of the use of performance enhancing drugs in sport. It looks at the legal basis for regulation via the World Anti-Doping Code and the nature of a sports participant's relationship with their governing body and the anti-doping organisations. It explains in the context of proportionality, the measures designed to combat doping in sport and the importance to the Code of the central principle of strict liability. It also, highlights the use of non-analytical positives as a further method of detection of doping violations, whilst taking consideration of the impact of these measures on the human rights of participants.
