Doug Landau welcomes drug testing at major sports competitions. The upcoming National Championships that are coming to the D.C. Metropolitan area will be subject to the anti-doping rules. Athletes who participate in this competition are subject to drug testing performed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in accordance with the USADA Protocol for Olympic Movement Testing. The motto of the USAT&F in the area of drug testing is: “BE AWARE. BE INFORMED. BE ALERT. BE CLEAN. USADA is here to help you PASS WITH FLYING COLORS.”

Interestingly, the “BE CLEAN” section states, “Checking to see if the medication you take is allowed could be the difference between passing your test and serving a doping ban. A search on USADA’s easy-to-use Drug Reference Online™ ( or a quick call to USADA’s Drug Reference Line™ (1-800-233-0393) and following-up with any necessary forms is all it takes to pass with flying colors.”
