We hope your preparations for these Championships are on schedule and that you are looking forward to renewing international acquaintances or meeting like-minded families from all over the world at this long-awaited event, fortunately being held in Europe this year and in a historically great athletic country.

Random anti-doping tests are carried out at these Championships and it is likely that you may not be familiar with testing procedures should you be selected. There is a very informative video where you can watch the procedure that an athlete is taken through here.

You are entitled to take a team manager, coach, or another athlete/person with you to the testing room. We are very limited on team managers as we are all volunteers. With two stadiums operating simultaneously, meetings to attend, etc. we will be very stretched time-wise.

If you are unsure whether or not any supplements or medication you are taking may contain any banned substances, or should you need a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) Certificate, check on the World Masters Athletics website, click on Competitions, and you should be able to find the information you need.

Carole Filer is the TUE Coordinator, if in doubt contact her at:
71 Hunter House Road, Sheffield. S11 8TU

Good luck in your competition.
