[Extract] The issue of doping in sport is always a topical one, but never has it been more so that in the last year or so. Firstly, in October 2012, the United States Anti-Doping Authority (USADA) released a 200 page report outlining its case against seven time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong. In February, 2013, meanwhile, the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) announced that its year long investigation had found evidence of the use of performance enhancing drugs in both the Australian Football League (AFL) and the National Rugby League (NRL). The report has led to a continuing investigation by the Australian Sport Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA).

This paper will therefore examine the Lance Armstrong doping scandal, and those now being investigated in the AFL and NRL. First, however, it will examine the relevant Articles of the World Anti-Doping Code.
