When athletes are called for drug tests on athletes they are sure that are drug test will happen, they will prepare for it and thereby they will neutralize the effects of drug testing with respect to detecting the use of performance enhancing drugs and/or detecting masking agents.
For drug testing athletes two ways of preparation of the sample is done:
• A year-round short notice
• No-notice testing
Year-round short-notice and no-notice testing are the pretty effective means to test the use of training drugs since they make athletes at risk to be tested. Some countries claim to have achieved successful no-notice testing with good results.
The drug testing of athletes process starts begins with taking a urine sample. This may sound simple; however, it is a big process has to be undergone for this. We might think about why we do not use blood for testing as a substitute for urine. There are many reasons for not being able to use the blood for testing. No real headache in sample collection of urine and no pin prick pains and paramedics.
Once the drug testing on athletes is initiated the athlete is required for drug testing, they will be notified by an official and they will be required to sign an acknowledgement. The training station is particularly designed as a mobile testing unit, independent of sampling officers. Each of the officers will carry a time limited ID card with a letter of authority for the event to which they are allotted. This is done to prevent athletes bribe the officers.
The drug testing in athletes is permitted is numbered bottles, before they give the urine the athlete will have to fill a form and they will have to declare the consumption of drug a week before. It can include prescription drugs and other drugs if any. After the independent sampling officer interviews to find the athlete in question, it is unlikely that the testing remains a surprise since by the way they react to the forms most details will be predictable and the guilt will be confirmed by positive or positive for adulterated sample.
Correct storage of samples is pretty important after the tests. As part of sports doping policy, the urine is not refrigerated or frozen until it reaches the lab. After all these procedures in the lab, if the test is going to be positive, it proves that the athlete has consumed the drug and a report with appropriate reasons and specifications of the drug are submitted. Before reporting confirmatory tests are done on the sample.
