Anti Doping

Doping is the administration of a prohibited substance and/or method to enhance performance or recovery. To allow the use of prohibited substances or methods would be to allow science to decide who wins or loses.


British Weight Lifting works with the IWF (International Weightlifting Federation), the IPC (International Paralympic Committee), WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) and UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) in the fight against doping, and conducts a full anti-doping programme covering the three important areas of education, testing (both in and out of competition) and results management.


We hope that this section of the British Weight Lifting website provides you with all the information you need.
