World Archery is committed to fighting doping within the sport of archery. Although the sport historically does not have a problem with doping, initiatives are taken to protect the integrity of clean athletes in archery through education and awareness.
World Archery’s Shoot Clean campaign was launched to tie in with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s “Say NO! To Doping” initiative.
It is a clear and striking brand, using the WADA green, that is heavily displayed at world championships, the Archery World Cup and other international events.
Shoot Clean is an awareness building programme, designed to encourage archers to continue fighting doping and remain clean athletes themselves.
Athletes may have conditions that require them to take particular medications. If this medication falls under the prohibited list, the athlete should apply for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) that gives them authorisation to take the required medicine and continue to compete.
