Batchworth AGM
14 Nov 2003
The Batchworth AGM took place on Friday and amongst other things, it was suggested we make a note about drug testing in sport.
Seeing as we have had three of our members tested this year it is worth taking note of what is and isn't allowed.
The UK Sport web site has a drug information database and a lot of other information concerning the subject.
Be aware that, unlike some other athletic sports, if you are tested positive at an event it will result not only in you being punished but also the whole team will probably be disqualified too.
Please do check carefully what you are taking - for example the standard Lemsip product is OK but there are several varieties which contain additions that are not allowed in sport such as the Lemsip capsules.
If in doubt ask someone...
