Doping News

Athletes that are subject to WADA's anti-doping rules, should be very careful not only about the medications and supplements that they take, but also about the source of their food.  Recently positive tests for clenbuterol as a result of eating contaminated meat products have been reported (most notable in the case of 3-times Tour de France winner Alberto Contador).  This recent article highlights the risk:

Be very careful!  Contador may be cleared to compete, but his reputation will forever be tarnished.  UK sprint hurdler Callum Priestley wasn't so lucky.

We will include further articles on doping in sport and precautions to take to avoid unintentional doping violations.  In the meantime, check out the UK Anti-doping (UKAD) website for further information.
