The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is tasked with testing athletes for use of performance enhancing drugs (PED) and disseminating information about healthy use of medicines, supplements, and procedures. We now have a link to their website on our website, under the "For Swimmers", "For Parents" and "Links" tabs.
Many athletes try to find an "edge" using supplements and vitamins. The USADA website provides information about which supplements may be beneficial, which may be harmful, and which are illegal in competition. It is the responsibility of the athlete to be aware of what he or she puts into their body! Be informed and healthy!
