Delay in Reporting for Doping Control Copy

The athlete should report to the doping control station immediately following notification.

However, the Doping Control Officer (DCO) may allow the athlete to delay reporting to the doping control station for activities such as: 

  • Medal ceremony
  • Press conference
  • Completion of a training session
  • Receiving critical or essential medical attention

During this time, the athlete is required to be accompanied by a DCO or a chaperone from the time of notification until the completion of the sample collection process.
