Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the regulation of doping in U.S. professional and amateur sport, as well as the anti-doping regime for Olympic and international sport. Doping is generally defined as the presence, use or attempted use, trafficking, possession, or administration of any prohibited substance or method—as well as evading, refusing, or failing to submit to sample collection; to file whereabouts, information, or missed tests; or to tampering or attempting to tamper with any part of doping control. Doping in sport jeopardizes the health and safety of athletes, undermines the fairness and integrity of sport competition, and is outright cheating. The “war” against doping in sport is truly global, yet the regulatory schemes vary depending on the applicable sport governance authority. Doping in sport can be addressed effectively and fairly by looking at the practical, political, legal, and ethical concerns related to doping, doping control, fair process, privacy, and impact on sport.

Keywords: international sports law, doping, doping in sport, drug testing, collegiate, professional sports, arbitration
