    Drugs in Sport – Synopsis

    We frequently read attention-grabbing headlines regarding the use of drugs in sport. In this presentation I will explore the truth behind these headlines.

    We will begin by reviewing the key events in the evolution of doping in sport, which has led to the present international regulation of doping, through the World Anti-Doping Agency. We will then explore the reasons why drugs and supplements are used by athletes, and it is not just about doping.

    I will then outline the rigorous testing procedures for doping in sport before speculating on the extent of drug misuse in sport. Finally, we will discuss the consequences for those athletes who dope.

    New members are welcome! Annual membership remains at £10 and renewals will be collected at the meeting. All proceeds from meetings are reinvested in the Club, the principal beneficiary being the Senior Blues Youth Foundation.
