Clean Sport for Indoor Rowers

Together we can keep indoor rowing clean and fair for everyone

“Anyone choosing to take doping as a short cut is not only creating a false reality of themselves but denying other athletes who put in honest hard work, dedication and personal sacrifice”

Justine Reston –  three-time British and four-time World Indoor Rowing Champion

British Rowing work 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.

Check out our Clean Sport page for more information.

Anyone who takes part in competitions and challenges 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.
