This case study suggests there is a pressing need for additional research that examines the real costs and benefits of illicit drug use in sport, and to what extent a zero-tolerance approach is workable in world where drug use has become an integral part of so many people’s social lives. Most illicit drug use does not heighten performance, and the arguments for drug-use testing out of competition are consequently problematic.
