” The decision to generalize the prohibition of glucocorticoids in competition is another step in the protection of the health of athletes, especially cyclists, an issue that was part of my campaign commitments in 2017 after the prohibition of tramadol in competition since 2019 and implementation of a concussion management protocol in 2021, “said Lappartient.
For the French leader it is “a new and important progress for the health of top-level athletes, a central theme of the 2022 Agenda “.
