World 200m champion Noah Lyles is one of 15 American athletes who have volunteered to conduct in-home drug tests on themselves. It is a part of a pilot program being run by the US Anti-Doping Agency.
With anti-doping collections severely curtailed across the globe because of the coronavirus pandemic, USADA is looking at new options, in this case by asking a group of leading Americans to give urine and small dried blood samples at home.
“They asked me to do it, and I wasn’t opposed to doing it,” Lyles told AP.
“It’s a way to get my drug test in,” added the Doha 2019 world 200m gold medallist.
Athletes are still required to fill out their whereabouts forms, and under this program, a doping control officer will connect with an athlete via Zoom or FaceTime during a prescribed window.
