Alcohol not a “performance-enhancing substance”

From ESPN.com: IAAF asks jumper accused of drinking at meet to explain conduct

Track and field’s ruling body wants Ivan Ukhov to explain his conduct at the Athletissima meet in which rival high jumpers said the Russian had been drinking vodka and Red Bull during the competition.

Ukhov failed with each attempt to clear the bar Tuesday before being asked to stop competing at the Swiss meet.

Alcohol is not classed as a performance-enhancing substance and is not formally prohibited in athletics competition.
