Inadvertent Doping in Sport

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Inadvertent doping is defined as an unintentional breach of anti-doping rules, which is often the result of professional errors, negligence or ignorance. Depending on etiology, inadvertent doping can be due to: i) unconscious taking of a prohibited drug substance due to the deliberate addition of it in the diet or in sports drinks by a third party (coach, physician); ii) improper pharmacological treatment of a professional athlete with active substances that are on the List of prohibited substances and methods; iii) inadequate documentation for obtaining the therapeutic use exemption for athletes with chronic medical conditions (when appropriate diagnosis is established, these athletes are allowed to use substances from the List of prohibited substances and methods for therapeutic purposes); iv) food contamination with prohibited substances from the environment; v) passive inhalation of prohibited substances; vi) usage of dietary supplements that are contaminated with the prohibited substances. The athlete is solely responsible for the substances which enter his body, thus even in the case of inadvertent doping, athletes are subject to the same sanctions as athletes who are intentionally taking a banned substance.
