WADA Prohibited List
WADA Prohibited List 2017 & Supplements doping risk
WADA has released the 2017 prohibited substance list, effective 1 January 2017.
Athletes should check the 2017 list (see WADA website) and also the ASADA website for their medications and supplements.
There will be no excuses for changes effective on 1 January 2017, as Maria Sharapova learned from her two year ban.
If you have a TUE, now is a good time to check if it covers you 100% from 2017.
Athletes may not rely on their coaches, doctors, parents or buddies to get it right.
Coaches may fall foul of their own anti-doping violation if they know about an athlete's prohibited substance use even if the coach is not aware it was prohibited.
Supplements and some common cough and flu medicines can contain prohibited substances. To borrow from rugby: "pause" before you "touch" something possibly with a banned substance or "engage" in a practice which could be prohibited.
