The present paper aims to study the incident of doping and types of drugs used in different universal sports in 2004 and 2005. The required data related to the number of tests executed and positive samples reported in different sport fields were acquired from World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) and International Olympic Committee (IOC) websites and were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results showed that the executed tests in 2005 (183337 items) have increased towards 2004 (169187) by 8.4% and the positive samples of doping (39.9 items) have increased in the mentioned year by 34.4% towards 2004 (1089). In sum, 6818 positive doping cases have been recorded in these two years. The most cases were reported in the mentioned two years for cycling (1089 items). The mostly-used drug was Anabolic Steroids (3055 items) and Cannabinoids (1021 items) and Beta2-Agonists (990) occupied in next places. In general, the present research showed that doping occurs at a high level in the world. It seems that doping is getting epidemic in Iran and it will be helpful to inform individuals to prevent doping.
