The Research

Clean Sport Week

The world of Elite Sports is constantly evolving, athletes constantly pushing the boundaries, setting records and challenging what we previously understood about the limits of the human body. The competitive nature of sports also leads to athletes trying to find that extra edge over their competitors. 
As the sports constantly evolve, so does the research into potential doping methods, their impact on performance and methods for testing against them. At Heriot-Watt, our programme leaders like Dr. Fergus Guppy are continuing this research, alongside the Sport and Exercise Science students.

The Athletes

Clean Sport Week

At Oriam, we support many athletes across a wide range of sports and disciplines and it is great to welcome them all to our facilities to train. For athletes, training and competing with integrity often becomes part of daily life, influencing their decisions on the nutrition, health care and training. 

Clean Sport guidance and Anti-doping regulations are there to maintain a fair and level field of competition, aiming to ensure that competitors performances can be celebrated as genuine feats of natural human athleticism. 

Our Sport Scholarship Athletes receive expert support from our Performance Sport team to guide them through their decision process for their own nutrition and training plans to help them maintain clean sport integrity. 

The Support Staff

more details coming soon

Often Anti-Doping and Clean Sport hits the headlines in relation to athletes but many of the regulations also apply to the support staff for a team or individual athlete. The surrounding team for an athlete play a big role in ensuring their athletes train and compete with integrity.
