SIA Doping prevention: education by athletes for athletes

Part of being a great athlete is being able to perform your best, even under pressure. But sometimes that pressure can also make you wonder whether you need something ‘extra’ to help you perform, and ultimately lead to doping.

There can be other triggers too and SIA recognises that the decision to dope is rarely black and white.

SIA have put together a collection of videos about doping developed by athletes, for athletes.

SIA's long standing advice is than no supplement is safe to use and athletes should not risk their careers by taking a supplement. Supplements can contaminated with substances which are prohibited in sport and may not be listed on ingredient labels.

While SIA recognises there may be circumstances where supplements are taken by athletes, the advise is to only use supplements which have been screened for prohibited substances by an independent company.

Prohibited Substances and Methods

Biathlon is a sport governed by the World Ant-Doping code and athletes competing in biathlon need to be aware they can’t just take any drug or mediation.

Each year the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) updates and publishes a Prohibited List. The Prohibited List is the international standard that outlines the substances and methods that are prohibited in sport.

Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE)

Athletes may at times need to use a prohibited medication to treat a legitimate medical condition. A TUE is an exemption that allows an athlete to use, for therapeutic purposes only, an otherwise prohibited substance or method (of administering a substance) which may be present during competition.
