Anti-Doping Information for Beijing 2022 Now Available for Canadian Athletes

Ottawa – January 19, 2022 – Anti-doping information for the Beijing 2022 Winter Games is now available for Team Canada athletes and support personnel. The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has consolidated information about therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs), whereabouts, Games-time doping control and supplement use for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Go to www.cces.ca/beijing2022.

All athletes should be aware of the change to the status of injectable glucocorticoids that came into effect with the 2022 Prohibited List. All injectable routes of administration of glucocorticoids are now prohibited in-competition. For more information, including a glucocorticoid washout table, see the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Glucocorticoids and Therapeutic Use Exemptions Guidelines.

Congratulations to all Team Canada athletes! We continue to be inspired by the perseverance and commitment of everyone who will represent Canada in Beijing. We are grateful for the cooperation with doping control and dedication to clean sport during the pre-Games testing program and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
