While most athletes are likely clean from doping, several major scandals in the last decade have challenged this notion

LONDON, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Most sports now have anti-doping programs to catch out cheats, with athletes regularly being subjected to drug tests. To ensure that athletes are caught out, many drug tests are entirely random, and theoretically, an athlete could have to take one at any given time. Some athletes have complained about the sometimes intrusive nature of the tests, but many see this as a necessary evil to keep sport clean.

The Anti-Doping in Sport - Thematic Research report offered by GlobalData Plc sheds light on the history of doping within sports, and the ongoing challenges that sport faces to eliminate it. It provides a detailed look at the anti-doping value chain which highlights how athletes can make money and what can be lost through testing positive for a banned substance.

Key Industry Trends Impacting the Anti-Doping Theme in the Sports Industry

The quality and technology involved in drug testing have improved leaps and bounds over the years. Additionally, more is now known about the effects of different substances, and how they can impact athletes. While drug testing has improved in the number of athletes being caught, many still regard dodging drug tests as too easy.

Anti-doping Value Chain

  • Sponsorship opportunities

  • Salaries

  • Social media

The more successful an athlete tends to be, the more likely they are to receive opportunities to partner with major brands. Money is a significant motivator for many athletes, as their profession allows them to financially secure themselves for a lifetime. However, testing positive for banned substances will always have negative connotations due to its association with cheating, and companies who have existing sponsorship deals will act quickly to sever those, so that there is no negative press by association. While athletes can often come back after failed drug tests, their reputation is forever tainted, and this will always make it harder for them to secure sponsorship deals in the future.
