All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. We believe in clean sport and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation, FIBA, the Home Country Associations and the Professional Leagues (BBL/WBBL), to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.
As many as one in ten sports supplements can be contaminated with ingredients and compounds prohibited in sport, so you need to ensure that your trusted nutrition partners consider their product development as seriously as you do your performance. Informed Sport can provide further guidance here.
