British Rowing to host anti-doping Q&A on Facebook

British Rowing will be hosting a live Q&A on anti-doping and clean sport in rowing on the evening of 16 February.


Got a burning question about anti-doping in rowing? Maybe you have been recommended a new supplement and want to find out how to ensure it doesn’t contain any banned substances. Maybe you want to clarify the new rules on asthma inhalers that came into force on 1 January. Or perhaps you want to know the procedure of an in-competition doping test.

Our anti-doping and integrity officer Jacqui Johnston will be hosting a Q&A on the British Rowing Facebook page on 16 February from 7pm to answer your queries. Jacqui will be joined in the Q&A by GB Rowing Team coach Darren Whiter. As the lead coach of the lightweight men, Darren has coached a host of world-class crews, including guiding Mark Hunter and Zak Purchase to consecutive World Championship titles in 2010 and 2011.

Most recently, Whiter coached Richard Chambers and Will Fletcher to World and European silver in 2015.

If you’ve got an anti-doping question to put Jacqui and Darren, you can submit it now ahead of the Q&A session here.
