There is no doubt that drugs in sport is one of the major areas of sports law, and in fact it can be considered to be the main area in which sport has developed its own law, rather than the general law in areas such as contract and torts being applied to a sporting context. This law originates from an international code, namely the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)’s Code which prohibits the use of drugs that are considered to enhance a person’s performance in sport. Legislation is then passed in the countries that abide by the Code, such as Australia, to allow for drug testing of competitors. This paper will therefore look at the WADA Code before looking at examples of drug taking in sport and how this issue has been handled by the respective governing bodies, including the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
