In Sports, the use of Prohibited substance or Prohibited methods or breaking Anti-Doping Rules Violations (ADRV) is termed as Doping. Anti-Doping Administrative Management System (ADAMS) has reported an average increase of 5.81% per year in the number of overall samples analysed (Olympic Sports and Non-Olympic Sports) for Anti-doping tests over the last 15 years (2003-2017). Since Mexico-1968 Olympic to Pyeongchang-2018 Olympic, 140 medals were stripped from sports persons due to Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) at various sports. In sports, there are seven broad classes of substance that are categorized under doping. Several Anti-Doping organizations like National Anti-Doping Agency and World Anti-Doping Agency are working together to prevent doping from sports, providing equal chance to each sports person and to protect health of the athletes. Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is the final court appeal for any National Anti-Doping Organization or whichever athlete or stakeholders who are breaking the ADRV. Pharmacists are playing an important role in sports by counseling athletes, advising physician and athletic personnel and enlightening the community about the ill effects of Anti-Doping. Sports Pharmacist with their knowledge and expertise can contribute immensely for spreading awareness about anti-doping practices among sports person and hence there is need to develop the concept of Sports Pharmacist in Indian Pharmaceutical Arena.
