UIPM Anti-Doping Activities Overview 2017

The fight against doping is fundamental to the integrity of Modern Pentathlon and all UIPM Sports. Through its National Federations, UIPM operates a zero-tolerance policy on doping and cheating in any form in order to protect clean athletes and promote clean sport. In 2017 the UIPM testing programme continued to evolve, using the latest systems for intelligence and analysis.

 1. Out-of-Competition Testing Program

In accordance with the directives of WADA, the UIPM Anti-Doping Programme is focusing on unannounced out-of-competition testing and this activity involves collecting athlete biological passport (ABP) tests.

In 2017 UIPM’s international registered testing pool consisted of 27 athletes across the entire UIPM world. From 2018 UIPM has introduced a wider testing pool in order to raise the effectivity of its testing programme.

In 2018 the number of in-competition tests will remain relatively constant. Out-of-competition testing will, however, focus on effective testing using intelligence. The testing approach changes from season to season, in view of intelligence and to ensure there is no familiarization with testing routines. Emphasis is also placed on carrying out testing where the national anti-doping program is not able to do so at a high level.
