It has its moment. When people aren't whining about who's playing/not playing on the live card and various other things, it can be quite entertaining. Its gotten harder and harder for those times to come around though. there are just soo many more people in the chat recently...

The pros could easily get a therapeutic use exemption to beat this. Plus it would be difficult to enforce the athlete whereabouts statutes because a lot of pros live in a van. I have no idea how the PDGA would set up a proper anti-doping system because it would be super expensive.

Expense is the biggest hindrance to this happening any time soon. Nick Diaz, a mma fighter, was once suspended for marijuana because of its "performance enhancing properties". Now I know smoking is not allowed during tournament play, but what kind of backlash would there be is weed was a tested for and punishable substance?

I agree they are a joke, however they are giant governing bodies and it is a step toward being considered a real sport vs silly fringe sport to have IOC recognition even if there is no hope or desire to be an Olympic sport. In many countries being recognized by their own Olympic Committee means funding and money for many amateur events as well as insurance and general legitimacy as a sport.

One of the criteria for IOC acknowledgment is having some kind of Anti-doping policy. There are many small sports where this is the case the actual testing is very very very limited due to the money it costs.

I suspect this initiative came about from the just completed PDGA Europe Board meeting considering Elaine was there and is seeking volunteers for this new committee. It's been needed for awhile now, separate from any new international initiative. Back in the early 2000s there were several years where PDGA Admin and Worlds TDs were discussing policy for when the heat index should stop or cancel play for a round or day. It would depend on the age range of competitors with juniors being the most vulnerable. No policy was ever formulated to my knowledge. With Junior Worlds in Emporia for a few years, it would seem like a good time for this new committee to address these guidelines.

There are many banned substances that are easily obtainable which could help performance in DG, such as SARMs, certain peptides (like BPC 157), and the easiest--testosterone.

I HIGHLY doubt most top DGers have any idea what any of these things are. (Actually, most look hypogonadic and could use some testosterone replacement...)

Also, if adderall is used that much, caffeine + l-theanine (in a 1:2 ratio) is proven to be more effective in treatment of adhd...and no addiction!
