What athletes need to know about their responsibilities during sample collection and what may be considered a failure to comply.
Category: Athlete Advisory
USADA will begin implementing new sample collection equipment as part of its continued commitment to innovation and providing athletes with the best possible anti-doping solutions.
To help athletes exercise their anti-doping rights, USADA has identified three questions that athletes should ask during every test.
In 2020, WADA made clarifications to the Prohibited List to help athletes and their support teams better understand prohibited substances and methods.
Take time to learn about the 2019 Prohibited List & become familiar with changes that might impact the substances & methods you can use as a competitive athlete.
Athletes who have a prescription for a compounded medication or a compounded supplement should be aware that compounding pharmacies are risky. Compounded products are more likely to be contaminated because they are mixed by hand and there is limited regulatory oversight.
USADA would like to remind all athletes that the 2018 WADA Prohibited List went into effect on January 1, 2018. The 2018 WADA Prohibited List does include changes from the previous year, so we strongly encourage athletes and their support personnel to review the updated 2018 WADA Prohibited List and use the resources below to better understand the changes.
