Abstract: First paragraph: Four-time Tour de France winnerChris Froome’spositive test for high levels of the asthma drugsalbutamolin September during the Vuelta a Espana race has prompted much debate on the rules surrounding medicines in sport. In essence, some drugs are not allowed, and others are allowed up to a threshold level under aTherapeutic Use Exemption(TUE). This creates problems in establishing the threshold level and around accidental over-use, but also opens the door to unethical behaviour.
