Abstract

This article discusses the increasing number of difficulties that exist when trying to regulate the use of performance enhancers in sports. While there has been success in prohibiting the use of performance enhancing drugs, such as anabolic steroids, athletes have created other performance enhancing techniques that may be harder to control. This article looks at those techniques, such as blood doping or stem cell procedures, and the problems that may be faced with trying to control their usage.

Keywords: Sports, Sports Law, Drugs, Regulation
