Summary  As London 2012 starts to become a distant memory, and Sochi 2014 becomes a near reality, it is timely that Waddington, Christiansen, Gleaves, Hoberman, and Moller (2013) and Henne, Koh, and McDermott (2013) have brought to the fore the inconsistencies within the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA's) policies regarding drug use in sport. These inconsistencies are not new; Smith and Stewart (2008) highlighted the inconsistencies and ambiguities of WADA policy, but nothing has changed in this time. Why a substance is placed on the banned list is an important discussion that should be occurring; however, this discussion should not be occurring in the isolation of the sporting world.
