Russian microbiologist hints at WADA’s potential ban on caffeine as doping in sports


MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) may possibly include caffeine on the list of its banned performance enhancing drugs for athletes, the Russian Federal Micro-Biological Agency (FMBA) Head Vladimir Uiba said on Friday.
"Caffeine, for instance, is currently on WADA’s waiting list of prohibited substances," Uiba told journalists. "If it (caffeine) eventually makes its way into the list of the prohibited substances, we will be forced to recommend everyone against drinking coffee as well as soft drinks containing caffeine."

I checked the article to see if it was published on the April 1st.

Important words in the article:

"may possibly"

"theoretically it can happen"

Someone is just trying to justify their inflated salary by getting published. Considering that its a common food/drink that anyone can access, I doubt that it would ever happen.

If it did, I'd give up competing. It's stupid enough as it is now. Getting a drug ban for drinking a red bull would show up on your resume for life and would impact on your ability to be employed and possibly, down the track, have an impact on crossing borders.

Hasn't there been a limit on caffeine anyway. Like if you smashed 15 Red Bull's you might get pinged.

I like that people posting here are outraged about wada testing, like it effects them. Lol.

1) 1st of April?
2) Russia is just salty because they are getting smashed by anti-doping peoples so they will say a lot of shit
3) A Russian Anti-Doping person is an oxymoron anyway.
