    • D.

      Stimulants

    Correct Answer
    C. Diuretics and other masking agents
    Explanation
    Xipamide and Bendroflumethiazide are examples of banned substances within the category of diuretics and other masking agents. Diuretics are substances that increase urine production and promote the excretion of water and electrolytes from the body. They can be used to mask the presence of other prohibited substances in urine samples by diluting or flushing them out. This category also includes other substances that can interfere with the doping control process, such as agents that alter the pH or specific gravity of urine. Therefore, athletes are prohibited from using diuretics and other masking agents to maintain the integrity of drug testing in sports.

      Sabotaged toothpaste

    • C.

      A 'male enhancement' product

    • D.

      Kissing a girl in a nightclub

    Correct Answer
    B. Sabotaged toothpaste
    Explanation
    On 19 October 1999 Baumann tested positive for nandrolone and received a two-year suspension, thus missing the 2000 Summer Olympics. The exact circumstances of this episode remain unclear. Baumann was voluntary tested after the initial results by an independent institute. Extremely high levels of nandrolone continued to be found in the tests and the results of the tests fluctuated dramatically depending on which time of day Baumann was tested. After several weeks of voluntary tests, Baumann claimed that the results varied with the time of day because the nandrolone was in his toothpaste. The German Athletics Federation (DLV) reluctantly believed Baumann that someone had manipulated his toothpaste and allowed him to start at the German championships where Baumann qualified for the Olympic Games in Sydney. However, the IAAF did not agree with that verdict and imposed a ban. Baumann tried to sue the IAAF before a German court but was unsuccessful
