WADA’s ‘ADEL for Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022’ is an interactive education course that was developed in collaboration with the ITA and the IOC. It will enable athletes and coaches to gain an understanding of the specificities of the Beijing 2022 anti-doping rules, procedures and requirements – including how to check medications or apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). It also explains how to provide whereabouts information during the Games and what the athletes’ rights and responsibilities during the testing process are. The course outlines important Games-time information, such as key dates and the roles and authorities of the organisations involved in the Games. Additionally, the new course will provide important information on modifications to the 2022 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, which will be published by 1 October 2021 and will be in force for Beijing 2022.
The ADEL Beijing 2022 course is accessible to anyone who creates a free account and is currently available in English, with French and Spanish translation coming soon. Any organisation interested in translating the course to other languages is invited to request this service by following this link. More information on the process, which requires a minimum investment of time and is free of charge can be found here.
