anti-doping testing
European Athletics

As part of European Athletics drive to eradicate doping from our sport we focus not only on education, but tests, in particular pre- and in-competition.

“We must ensure a clean sport and fairness amongst all competitors. One way is to search for cheating athletes through doping controls. We are continuously increasing and improving the number of controls in all our events.” – Hansjörg Wirz, European Athletics President.

As part of European Athletics drive to eradicate doping from our sport we focus not only on education, but tests, in particular pre- and in-competition tests to ensure that competing athletes are clean and healthy.
