Important Advice to all DSA Members - Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel -
Also importantly, Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel must –
- take responsibility, in the context of anti-doping, for what they ingest and use.
- inform medical personnel of their obligation not to Use Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods and to take responsibility to makesure that any medical treatment received does not violate this Anti-Doping Policy.
Should there be any questions, I would be very pleased to respond.
