Triathlon Queensland endorses Triathlon Australia’s policies in relation to anti-doping. The national policy aligns with the policies of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) as well as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
ASADA is the Australian body which investigates suspected anti-doping rule violations, makes recommendations on its findings, and presents cases against alleged offenders at sport tribunals.

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)
Athletes may be allowed to use certain substances or methods that are normally prohibited by WADA provided that they do so for therapeutic purpose. The Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee provides information about eligibility for a TUE as well as the form you need to submit for an exemption.
Drugs are outlawed in sport because they may enhance performance, harm athlete’s health and is contrary to the spirit of sport. Triathlon Queensland emphasises education for athletes to encourage the principles of fair play, communicate the short and long term consequences of taking drugs, and to promote a clean image for triathlon.
Education sessions are available for athletes, coaches, clubs, team managers and race organisers in an effort to educate all parties as to their role and responsibilities. We’ve adopted an open education policy to emphasise triathlon as a clean and enriching sport.
