Dopingkontrollaktivitäten in Deutschland 1989-2006

Translated title of the contribution: Doping control activities in Germany 1989-2006

Publication: Contribution to journalJournal articlesResearch


Doping controls are key factors for fair and clean sports. The developments of German activities in the national antidoping fight were evaluated over a period of 18 years (1989-2006) with regard to in-competition and out-of-competition testing. The quantity of respective controls conducted by federations and antidoping organizations, the ratio of in- and out-of-competition controls, the number of athletes per squad (and thus per-capita tests) as well as adverse analytical findings are summarized. The available data demonstrated a constantly increasing effort, particularly regarding the amount of out-of-competition controls, but also discrepancies in per-capita analyses between different federations. In light of recent doping scandals and confessions in 2007, a critical review of national antidoping actions is considered necessary.
