With the start of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 scheduled for February 2022, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced the launch of a new interactive education course on its Anti-Doping Education and Learning Platform (ADEL), earlier this month, for athletes and coaches aiming to attend the Olympic Winter Games.

Athletes and coaches can take this latest course to gain an understanding of the Beijing 2022 Anti-Doping rules, procedures, and requirements – including how to check medications and apply for a TUE, how to provide whereabouts information, and explanations of the athletes’ rights and responsibilities during the testing process. The course will also allow athletes and coaches to identify key information, such as important dates that they need to be aware of and which organization has jurisdiction over them during the Games.

In addition to the above, the new course will provide important information regarding modifications to the 2022 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods which has been recently published and will be in force during the Beijing Games. In particular, the course will provide information on the major changes regarding routes of administration of Glucocorticoids that will be enforced from 1 January 2022.
