Well there is plenty of news about doping scams of late which there is no need for me to elaborate on but yet it is hard to take in and you wonder why some people put themselves into these positions,to be fair though things like this can happen to any athlete without knowing and medications that might seem simple even for a common everyday cold could contain banned substances and by just looking at this app something quite common is listed which is a ventolin inhaler which myself seems rather strict.. For now and  my personal thoughts its a big media hype and to name a person and NOT NAME THE SUBSTANCE at the same time seems wrong but thats not my call and it will all come out in the end.Now there is no excuse with this app called Medication Checker…

The app is simple to use and pretty self explanatory and athletes that compete should have this at hand,there is no excuse now. Available free on Android and iOS…

 

 

DESCRIPTION 

The Anti-Doping Unit of the Irish Sports Council runs the Irish Anti-Doping Programme. This application assists athletes to check the status of their medication, purchased in the Republic of Ireland, against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List. WADA issues a Prohibited List, a List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, that designates what is prohibited in- and out-of-competition. The List also indicates whether particular substances are banned in particular sports.
