The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) have today announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) designed to enhance cooperation in investigative activities.
ASADA has today released a series of anti-doping videos designed to help athletes cope with the pressures of life in sport and prevent doping.
The videos were developed by athletes, for athletes, and acknowledge the range of triggers which can lead to doping.
In the wake of a recent article which advertised peptides as ‘the legal performance enhancer even doctors are using’, ASADA has today issued a stark warning on the safety of peptides and other substances not approved for human use, which are also banned in sport.
In a bid to protect athletes from dangerous substances, two Australians have been added to the global list of support personnel banned from interacting with athletes and sports.
The statement below was submitted by the CEO of ASADA, David Sharpe, to the Senate Estimates Committee on Thursday 26 October 2017.
Chair and Committee members,
ASADA can confirm that Olympic Swimmer Jarrod Poort has been handed a 12 month sanction.
Mr Poort was found to have committed a Whereabouts anti-doping rule violation, following three filing failures within the space of 12 months.
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority acknowledges the 12-month sanction imposed by the FINA Doping Panel on Australian swimmer, Thomas Fraser Holmes for Whereabouts failures – three missed tests in a 12-month period.
