British Shooting has released its latest anti-doping policy to fall in line with the World Anti-Doping Agency's code for 2015.
The aims of the 2015 Code and WADA are to:
- Protect the Athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for Athletes worldwide.
- Ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programmes at the international and national level with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping.
British Shooting believe in clean target shooting and work in partnership with UK Anti- Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation to ensure that the integrity of shooting is protected.
The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.
The rules that British Shooting has in place must be adhered to by all
athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel.
The latest policy sets out the anti-doping framework in the UK and outlines the objectives and requirements of the UK Government regarding anti-doping in sport. It also identifies the roles played by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD), the National Anti-Doping Panel, the Home Country Sports Councils and National Governing Bodies in delivering these objectives.
