World Anti Doping Association- 2017 Prohibited List
With doping hitting the headlines so much in recent months it is worth reminding our athletes of the list of prohibited substances.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the 2017 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods. The updated list comes into force on 1 January 2017. It specifies which substances and methods are prohibited, both in- and out-of-competition, as well as which substances are banned in particular sports.
All athletes and support personnel are advised to familiarise themselves with the updates. To that end, a summary of major modifications is available here: https://wada-main-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/resources/files/2016-09-29_-_wada_summary_of_modifications_eng_final.pdf , and the full list is available here: https://wada-main-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/resources/files/2016-09-29_-_wada_prohibited_list_2017_eng_final.pdf .
If you are an elite athlete or an up and coming elite athlete please familiarise yourself with this documentation.
