New iPhone app to help end drugs confusion

Irish athletes afraid of accidentally failing a drugs test can now benefit from pioneering technology by the Irish Sports Council (ISC), which will ensure they no longer have any excuses.

The ISC has designed a free iPhone application that can be used while shopping for medicines to immediately identify if they comply with anti-doping rules. The ground-breaking initiative is believed to be the first of its kind anywhere in the world and it can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes store.

It was unveiled yesterday at the launch of the ISC's annual anti-doping report, which revealed that blood testing was introduced for the first time here during the last year.
