Di­uret­ics are used in sports with weight limits to reduce weight quickly. Sports where weight loss may be an ad­van­tage include the martial arts, rowing, boxing, weight lifting and - most of all - ski jumping. Athletes have also taken di­uret­ics to speed up the rate that other banned drugs are passed out of their body.
