Athletes who are part of the registered testing pool under the Canadian Anti-Doping Program can be tested for blood or urine or both, at any given time. The procedures for urine and blood collection are essentially the same whether the tests are conducted out of competition or in competition. Athletes can be approached at their home or at a competition so it is important to make this distinction to better illustrate the complexity of the anti-doping program.
