The Language of Anti-Doping: Performance-enhancing or inhibiting drugs?

Top level sport faces considerable challenges in the fight against doping. Recent revelations about corruption, fraud and cheating have unsettled the sports community worldwide. In the light of the upcoming Winter Olympics, anti-doping is under immense pressure to reassure athletes, sport organisations, spectators and sport fans about the integrity of sport events which take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea between February 9-25.

Tony Cunningham, Senior Manager Education at the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in Montreal, Canada will talk about the importance of language in anti-doping policies, codes and rules. This timely event will also offer a unique opportunity for interested staff and students to ask questions and discuss anti-doping issues during the events of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games.

The Centre for Leading Research on Ergogenic Performance Enhancement, Anti-doping and Nutrition in Elite SPORT (C.L.E.A.N. SPORT) invites all Kingston University staff members and students to join.
