What is dope test and why it is done?

The use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport is commonly referred to by the disparaging term "doping", particularly by those organizations that regulate competitions. The use of performance enhancing drugs is mostly done to improve athletic performance. This is why many sports ban the use of performance enhancing drugs. Another similar use of medical technology is called blood doping, either by blood transfusion or use of the hormone erythropoietin (EPO). The use of drugs to enhance performance is considered unethical by most international sports organizations and especially the International Olympic Committee, although ethicists have argued that it is little different from the use of new materials in the construction of suits and sporting equipment, which similarly aid performance and can give competitors advantage over others. The reasons for the ban are mainly the alleged health threat of performance-enhancing drugs, the equality of opportunity for athletes and the supposedly exemplary effect of "clean" ("doping-free") sports in the public.To check wethere any player has taken drugs to play better is known as dope test.It is done so that no player can use drugs.

Laws have been passed forbidding athletes to use drugs for performance enhancement. And should an athlete be caught taking any they get disqualified from the meet.

Can lifting heavy weights damage the liver?

Weightlifting, like many sports played at a high level, causes specific adaptation of the body and this adaptation enables the athlete's performance to improve. If you undertake endurance training on a regular basis, your endurance improves. If you undertake training in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting, your power, strength and athleticism improves. In any sport training, the organs of the body respond to training and improve their functioning. There is no evidence that the liver in Weightlifters is caused damage as a result of proper training. However, there could be damage to the liver if an athlete takes performance enhancing drugs. This is not permitted in sport but unfortunately people do. All drugs taken in excess can damage the liver including paracetemol which millions of people take everyday.

What happens if you are caught taking drugs in sport?

It all depends on the sport. Different sports have different rules and regulations involving drugs (which are illegal and legal). If the drug happens to be illegal in the sport, disciplinary action will be taken and suspension will probably be the outcome.
