In just over a year, thirteen Australian athletes across nine different sports have tested positive to Higenamine, which is a prohibited drug both in and out of competition. To help prevent yourself, your child or club members from testing positive, it is extremely important that you read the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authorities recently released blog post on the matter.

In addition to this warning, ASADA, in conjunction with sporting partners such as the AIS, will be continuing to look at creating new and innovative resources which will assist athletes to avoid or reduce the risk involved with supplement products and we look forward to making these available for your use in the near future. ASADA appreciate’s any feedback and would welcome any comments or suggestions with regards to how to improve the education of athletes around the issue of supplements.
