Positive drugs tests results are reviewed by a panel of sports officials and athletes employed by the IOC. (International Olympic Committee) If athletes do test positive on a drugs charge they are at risk of losing a set percentage of their competitive season, they will be allowed to practice within this specified time but are not eligible to compete. If they test positive more than once they can be also be banned from competition for up to one year and could also lose their scholarship, and some may even be banned from competition completely and are no longer able to participate in any sport. Some cases of drugs testing are disputed and this can lead to a hearing. (University of Ulster, 2009)

Human Growth Hormone
Blood doping (BBC, 2013)
Lance Armstrong
Why did he do it??
Lance Armstrong quoted that "It would be impossible to win the Tour de France without taking any sort of drugs. The Tour is a test of endurance, where oxygen is the decisive factor. For example,EPO, it's not going to help a sprinter over 100 metres but it will make all the difference to a 10,000-metre runner. That’s obvious.” (Lichfield, 2013)
