The athlete must tell ASADA where they will be for this hour and make sure that they are at the specified place.
Whereabouts can be submitted online, or by mail or fax.
If an athlete is not able to be at their specified location at their nominated time, they must let ASADA know as soon as possible.
Failure to be available for testing at the specified location at the nominated time is the same as missing a test. A missed test can lead to an Anti-Doping Rule Violation and sanction.
It’s hard for anyone to know where they’ll be three months in advance, so athletes can update their whereabouts information at any time before their nominated hour by logging in online, calling 13 000 ASADA (13 000 27232) or if there’s enough time, posting an updated Whereabouts form [PDF - 115KB] to PO Box 1744 FYSHWICK ACT 2609.
Knowingly giving ASADA false information in a Whereabouts Filing can lead to an Anti-Doping Rule Violation and sanction.
