The World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) has today released a list of prohibited substances and method ahead of 2017.
Meldonium, a drug added from January 1st 2016, which resulted in a two year ban for tennis star Maria Sharapova remained on this year’s list.
The list was approved by the Executive Committee last Wednesday detailing all drugs and substances athletes are banned from using in and out of competition and the one banned from certain Sports.
WADA President Craig Reede said and I quote ” Athletes and their entourage have ample time to familiarize themselves with the list”.
” There can be no tolerance for people who intentionally break the rules. End of Quote”
The updated list comes into effect on January 1st 2017.
