Banned sports stimulants to be tabled in Parliament – Minister Namal

By | May 5, 2021

The official text of the prohibited list, including banned stimulants, introduced by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2021 for various sports is scheduled to be presented to Parliament for its approval on April 21, states Youth and Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa.

The Minister stated the above at the Ministerial Consultative Committee on Youth and Sports held in the Parliament Complex yesterday.

The World Anti-Doping Programme annually publishes a list of prohibited stimulants for various sports, and where sports persons unknowingly or unintentionally use these substances to enhance their skills would constitute a reason for them to be disqualified from that event or would resort to some other form of action.

Accordingly, the list updated annually and maintained by WADA post an extensive consultation process which would come to effect from the 01st of January to 31st December 2021 is scheduled to be presented to Parliament.
