My eldest daughter, who was an elite standard racewalker, once entered a local (running) 10k in Sheffield and walked it. After she finished an irate bloke in a running vest came up and berated her - saying she only "Beat him" because she cheated.

"Say what?"

"You weren't walking you were running"

"Erm........."

Not sure if codeine is on the list, but I would imagine a fair few take that on and off for various ailments, rather than performance enhancement, although I have heard a few say to take it for the constipation side effects before a race.

I imagine there's a fair few who also take recreational drugs that could be seen as performance enhancing.

Take a look to see if what your taking is on the list, it's not difficult to find out.

One of the mantras of anti doping is it's 100% me" that also means the responsibility is 100% you
