Clean sport is something at Inside Indoor that we fully promote for indoor rowing, specifically if your looking to compete or take part in any challenges using the machine.
British Rowing work closely with Inside Indoor and with UK Anti-Doping and World Rowing to provide information and education for rowers of all ages, levels, and disciplines. This includes indoor rowers and indoor rowing instructors as well as anyone with a role in supporting someone to take part in indoor rowing.
Anyone who takes part in competitions and challenges including those organised or recognised by British Rowing, should be aware of and understand their responsibilities in relation to clean sport. This includes ensuring they are not taking, using or encouraging the use of anything which is prohibited in sport.
The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour is cheating, and severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean indoor rowers.
As part of their anti-doping programmes, UK Anti-Doping and World Rowing carry out testing on rowers throughout the year. This could happen at any time, anywhere, at random or based on information that has been passed on, which is why we encourage you to read about clean sport and what it means for you, learn through the free online modules, or attend a clean sport webinar.
