The International Olympic Committee requires a confirmation by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry for all positive doping cases. Because of the severe consequences involved they should be more specific about the required information and determine the differences allowed. The use of tandem mass spectrometry in dope control should be required before the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992. This article shows the power of tandem mass spectrometry in the definite identification of a drug.
