Retired Athletes Returning to Competition

  • If an Athlete in the KADA Registered Testing Pool (RTP) wishes to retire from the sport, the athlete should submit a "Retirement Statement" to KADA. Once KADA receives it, the athlete will be removed from the KADA RTP.
  • If a retired athlete wishes to return to active participation in the sport, the athlete shall submit a “Return-from-Retirement Statement” to KADA at least six months in advance and comply requirements of Article 5.7 of World Anti-Doping Code (the Code) and Korea Anti-Doping Code (KADC).

World Anti-Doping Code Article 5.7 (Retired Athletes Returning to Competition)


  • Article 5.7.1

    Athletes should inform the same National Anti-Doping Agency as they submitted a retirement statement in writing. (If requested) athletes might not be able to participate in the international or national competition until making them available for testing by giving six months prior written notice in accordance with all Whereabouts requirements in the International Standard for Testing and Investigations Annex I. WADA, in consultation with the relevant International Federation and National Anti-Doping Organization, may grant an exemption to the six-month written notice rule where the strict application of that rule would be unfair to an Athletes. This decision may be appealed under Article 13.

    5.7.1.1

    Any competitive results obtained in violation of Article 5.7.1 shall be Disqualified.

  • Article 5.7.2

    If an Athlete retires from sport while subject to a period of Ineligibility and then wishes to return to active competition in sport, the Athlete shall not compete in International Events or National Events until the Athlete has made himself or herself available for Testing by giving six months prior written notice (or notice equivalent to the period of Ineligibility remaining as of the date the Athlete retired, if that period was longer than six months) to his or her International Federation and National Anti-Doping Organization.
