Manx athletes competing at next year's Island Games will learn about anti-doping rules ahead of the competition.

Isle of Man Sport is launching a new anti-doping and testing programme, starting with workshops for those most likely to represent the Island at next year's Games in Gotland in Sweden.

Officials from UK Anti-Doping will deliver the Clean Sport workshops to around 75 athletes to make sure Manx competitors know what substances they can and can't take.

Doping rules have been under scrutiny in recent months following Russia's exclusion from the athletics events at this summer's Olympics, along with hackers leaking a number of sports stars' medical information.

Further workshops will be held in March as more athletes secure their places at the Games, which take place next June.
