The British Wrestling Association believes in Wrestling clean and works in close partnership with UK Anti-Dopin (UKAD) (link) and United World Wrestling (link) to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.
The BWA has committed itself to publicising Anti-Doping Rule Violations in Wrestling in the UK on this website such that our Wrestling Community can be in no doubt that all members are covered by the rules and can be tested at any time, regardless of age or location, and that any transgression will be dealt with according to the UKAD Rules (link) – in order that clean wrestlers can be assured of a “level playing field.”
For further information, please refer to the Anti-Doping page on the British Wrestling Website (link) which has a section on “Strict Liability” which means that all athletes are solely responsible for any banned substance they use, attempt to use, or that is found in their system, regardless of how it got there and whether or not they had an intention to cheat, and also has a section on “Risks with Nutritional Supplements.”
All members of the British Wrestling Association are recommended to download the ‘100% me Clean Sport’ App, the place for all things anti-doping. Its slogan is “Helping you make the right decisions at the right time.”
