Anti-doping

The following is a quote from UK Athletics:

 

“Doping is the administration of a prohibited substance and/or method to enhance performance or recovery. To allow the use of prohibited substances or methods would be to allow science to decide who wins or loses - it would take the athlete out of athletics”.

 

UK Athletics works with the IAAF, the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and UK Sport in the fight against doping and conducts a full and comprehensive anti-doping programme covering the three important areas of education, testing and results management.

 

UK Athletics conducts in-competition testing for able-bodied athletes and out-of-competition testing for able-bodied and disability athletes (the disability programme is conducted under agreement with the British Paralympic Association).
