CBSE schools Sports meet to conduct dope testCBSE has decided to conduct a dope test for participants of its inter-school sports event scheduled to start in September. A circular issued by the board mentions that the testing will be done in association with the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA).

The decision could be result of 11 athletes testing positive in the National School Games in January. The event’s organizer, School Games Federation of India (SGFI), believed lack of knowledge about banned substances among schoolchildren was a major concern.

To be safe, CBSE will soon be releasing a list of banned substances for its Inter-School Games and Sports Competitions (ISGSC). The board’s circular does not give details on whether the test will be for all athletes or done on a random basis. Also the methodology to be used by NADA is not mentioned but a separate notice to host schools asks them to keep doctors on site for emergency and age-verification purpose.

There are several testing methods available – urine, hair, oral fluids and sweat. These methods vary in cost, reliability, drugs detected and detection period. Event organizers can determine their needs and choose the method that best suits their requirements.

Under established doping control protocols, a participant will be asked to provide urine sample which will be divided into two as A and B. If sample A has revealed presence of any prohibited substance then to protect the rights of a participant the B sample would be analyzed to confirm that an anti-doping rule violation has occurred.
