Anti-doping activities are central to the Finnish Ski Association's work. All our disciplines, (i.e. alpine and freestyle skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping and Nordic combined) collaborate with us in working against doping. Educating people, influencing attitudes and supervising the athletes are all part of the actions we take. We co-operate with both national and international quarters, such as The Finnish Antidoping Agency (FINADA) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
In order to avoid inadvertent anti-doping rule violations, athletes should familiarise themselves with the WADA's annual List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (the List), which can be found here. Additionally, the FINADA publishes a corresponding list on its website here. Athletes themselves must ensure that the list they are using is up to date. Whenever necessary, athletes may contact either the FINADA or the Finnish Ski Association.
Athletes consulting a physician should always mention that they are within the scope of doping control. This enables the physician to immediately check whether the medication or treatment in question is permissible. If necessary, the physician may also contact the FINADA for further information. Nonetheless, athletes themselves are responsible for any medication or treatment they are receiving.
