As part of the ongoing commitment to fair and clean sport, ETU and ITU have made clear statements and efforts to help eradicate the use of prohibited substances and methods in triathlon. Glasgow 2018 fully supports this commitment and will have an anti-doping programme built into the competition; both for elite and age group athletes. In the lead-up to the Championships we will regularly provide information and links to appropriate educational materials and supporting documents to help ensure all of our athletes realise the responsibilities they hold in relation to clean competition.
