Weightlifting Ireland in partnership with Sport Ireland Anti-Doping is committed to ensuring weightlifting is a clean sport. Sport Ireland Anti-Doping is the National Anti-Doping organisation whose function includes the implementation of guidelines, codes of practice, standards of good conduct, fair play and the elimination of doping in sport.
We recognise that our membership is growing, with athletes taking their first steps onto the pathway to International representation. Weightlifting Ireland is dedicated to supporting our athletes on this pathway and providing education to support them through the process. It is highlighted that Anti-Doping does not just concern competitions (National or International) but should be a day to day consideration for all.
Our Anti-Doping Officers, Harry Leech and Lucy Moore-Fox, will be hosting an online Anti-Doping presentation on Friday 3rd February 2023 at 7.30pm. This 45 minute presentation is for ALL athletes (youth, junior, senior & masters), parents and coaches. We request that under 18 athletes are accompanied by a parent or coach (they can join independently on separate devices). If you are an athlete who has been aspirations of competing internationally, we would encourage full attendance.
Harry and Lucy welcome any questions on Anti-Doping, but if you can forward them in advance by Thursday 2nd February, it would be greatly appreciated. If you do not wish for your question to be discussed at the presentation, or think of any afterwards, they will also provide their contact details.
The seminar will cover:
- An introduction to the anti-doping rules.
- The WADA 2023 Prohibited list.
- Use of Over the Counter (OTC) and prescriptions medications.
- What an anti-doping test looks like.
- Q&A Session.
