Taekwondo in Singapore is doping-free. That is what the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) wants. That is what the taekwondo community should be proud of as it reflects important values of the sport.
The best way to prove that taekwondo in Singapore is doping-free is for taekwondo members to be tested.
The STF has agreed to collaborate with Antidoping Singapore on the In-Competition Testing and the Education Outreach to keep taekwondo doping-free.
All coaches have to ensure that their players do not unwitting consume any drug. It is easier not to take drugs than to explain how the drugs got into your system by accident or out of ignorance.
If your players are on medication containing substances on the prohibited list, they should be advised to apply for Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). Click the ‘Say No! to Doping’ icon on STF website, www.stf.sg, to find out more on TUE.
The STF will not hesitate to take serious disciplinary action against any member caught using performance enhancing drugs.
