What does a ban from Sport actually mean
Athletes are not allowed to:
- Compete in any NGB/IPSF Competitions
- Train in an IPSF/NGB approved center e.g. affiliated club, funded gym, funded facility
- Receive any Sport related funding
Any previous medals, titles and records will also be removed.
Athletes are entitled to receive anti-doping education and may be able to still receive Sport funded medical treatement.
Most athletes have a deep passion for their sport and dedicate a significant amount of time to it. Having this removed can be difficult for athletes and should be a strong deterrent.
Not only do athletes face a ban from their sport for a period of time they also may face many wider consequences.
