The paper explores the complex interplay between anti-doping regulations and the protection of athletes' rights in sports. It delves into the historical evolution of anti-doping measures, highlighting significant milestones like the formation of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC). The paper critiques the principle of strict liability and the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) process, scrutinizing their implications on athletes' privacy, due process, and fair treatment. It underscores the necessity of balancing stringent anti-doping efforts with respect for athletes' fundamental rights, advocating for enhanced transparency, consistency, and education to foster a just and equitable sports environment.
