Supplement Use in Elite Track Not Getting Better


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/17/2013 -- People will stop at nothing to win. And for some that means taking unregulated performance enhancing supplements.

Getting access to performance enhancing supplements, many which are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, can be as easy as walking into a GNC store or other “health” store and purchasing what is wanted over the counter.

A TUE (therapeutic use exemptions) form is required for athletes who for example require an inhaler for asthma. The inhaler or other asthma meds could be performance enhancing. The Olympics, for example, are seeing more and more TUE forms being filed, and unfortunately have a hard time separating the truthful forms from those that want to get around the rules.

“There are a lot of substances that are mis-described or confusingly labeled, which makes it hard for athletes,” said Jacobs, who declined to say if he’s representing any athletes who have recently tested positive. “The supplement issue is a difficult one. I don’t know how you go about assuring yourself that what you’re taking is safe. That has been the case and continues to be the case.”

Athletes need to be diligent about making sure supplements are not miss labeled.
