World Archery is the international governing body for the sport of archery. Its mission is to promote and regulate archery worldwide, developing the sport with over 160 member associations through international events, development initiatives and marketing and endorsed by the International Olympic Committee, International Paralympic Committee and International World Games Association, among others.
Events in the World Archery calendar that include the TUE icon require any athlete taking medication that falls under the prohibited list to have a therapeutic use exemption to compete.
All World Archery record status events require TUE.What is a TUE?
Athletes may have conditions that require them to take medications that fall under the prohibited list. A therapeutic use exemption may give the athlete authorisation to take the required medicine and still compete without breaking anti-doping rules.
Archery is an extremely accessible sport in countries around the world. It is a sport for all ages and abilities - and can be as recreational or competitive as the person taking part wants!
Beware: Archery is addictive. One shot can have you hooked for a lifetime.
