Objective: The objective of this study was to present a description of positive cases of doping in athletes practicing Brazilian athletics.

Material/Methods: With the authorization of the Brazilian Athletics Confederation (I believe needs to be placed here WHAT was done). We conducted a search in the database of the National Anti Doping Agency (ANAD) regarding the athletes tested between the years 2002 and 2010, through descriptive statistical analysis.

Results: It was found that between 2002 and 2010 found a total of 3,123 tests, 42 positive cases of doping among athletes brazilians.The anabolic agents were the most prevalent substances found in tests with more than 40% of cases, followed by stimulants with more than 25%. The event of Long Distance showed the highest incidence of athletes with positive tests, with a percentage more than 55%. The substances most found were the anabolic agents (38%) and stimulants (34%). For the event of Middley Distance, the most prevalent were anabolic agents and peptide hormones with 40% in each case. In the sprints events only two substances were found, anabolic agents (55%) and peptide hormones (50%). In the jump events total up anabolic agents by 57%.For the throw and shot put events the stimulants were the highlights with 50% of case. Amoung women, the highest incidence of positive tests is evidence in the long distance events, with 44% of cases, followed by jumping events (22%) and the Middley Distance (22%). In men, evidence of substance also has the highest number of cases (64%), followed by the sprints (15%).

Conclusion: From the data presented we could observe that among the athletes of athletics the substances were found; agents anabolic (41%), stimulants (25%) peptides hormones (16%), diuretic and agents masked (8%), glucose (6%) modulated (moduladores) and hormones antagonist (4%). For both gender the long distance (57%) was that presented the most number of doping, followed jumps (14%).
