There are potential consequences for failing to provide whereabouts information in a timely and accurate fashion.
If you don’t submit your whereabouts information quarterly and update it as necessary, or you provide incomplete information, you may receive a whereabouts strike - called a filing failure.
If a doping control officer can’t find you at the location indicated during your 60-minute time slot, you may receive a different kind of whereabouts strike - called a missed test.
Any combination of three whereabouts strikes (filing failures and/or missed tests) in an 12-month period, applied by either the CCES or your international federation, may result in an anti-doping rule violation.
RTP athletes must keep their whereabouts information up-to-date!
