New year, new anti-doping regime
IT WILL SOON be an offence for athletes to utilise a number of substances approved for daily usage in and out of competition.
This was disclosed by chairman of the National Anti-Doping Commission, Dr Adrian Lorde, at a lecture on Combatting Drugs In Sport at Solidarity House on Thursday night.
Lorde told the audience, which included athletes, former athletes and anti-doping officers, that a number of substances were added to the monitoring programme and would take effect come January 2017.
He explained that the World Anti-Doping Agency and governments are observing these substances which are not a part of the prohibited list but they believe needed monitoring to detect forms of misuse in sport.
