Tyler Hamilton meets with WADA and visits elementary school

Tyler Hamilton, a former professional cyclist who was part of the US Postal Service Team doping scandal, was in Montreal last week to meet with WADA to help shed more light on doping practices.

A few years ago, Hamilton admitted that he had used banned substances during his racing career and has since been collaborating with relevant authorities in support of doping investigations.

Hamilton met with the WADA Education Committee to provide information that will further assist in the development of effective anti-doping education programs. "Tyler’s open and honest approach to his past experiences provided valuable insight on how we can be more effective in preventing the use of doping," said Education Committee Chair Ed Jurith (pictured on the left).

Tyler Hamilton also visited a local elementary school to answer questions about his experience and to speak about the perils of cheating and doping in sport.
