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: , and the full list is available here: .

If you are an elite athlete or an up and coming elite athlete please familiarise yourself with this documentation.
