Drugs in Sport by David R. Mottram

Drug use and abuse is perhaps the biggest challenge facing sport today. However, in the eye of the storm of public and press opinion and with medals and morals at stake, it can be difficult to gain a clear perspective on this complex issue. Now available in a fully updated and revised sixth edition Drugs in Sport is the most comprehensive and accurate text available on the subject. Taking into account the latest regulations, methods and landmark cases, the book explores the hard science behind drug use in sport as well as the ethical, social, political and administrative context. Key topics include:

  • Mode of action and side effects of each major class of drugs used in sport
  • Discussion of cutting-edge issues such as gene doping and athlete biological passports
  • The latest doping control regulations of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
  • Issues surrounding non-prohibited substances and ergogenic aids in supplements
  • Medical and pharmaceutical services at major sporting events
  • An assessment of the prevalence of drug taking in sport

Accessibly written, extensively referenced, and supported throughout with illustrative case studies and data, Drugs in Sport provides a comprehensive, objective resource for students and researchers, athletes, sports scientists and coaches, journalists, sports administrators and policymakers.
