Drug testing
With competitions coming up I would like to remind everyone of the importance of the anti-doping policy
ANYONE can be tested – and it is likely that you will be tested
You need to be certain you do not have any banned substance in your body

Do not take any medication unless you have checked here that it is permitted

Supplements are also a risk
In particular PLEASE DO NOT TAKE preworkout – these supplements are very risky
