There are also a few age groups at the ISMF World Cup: juniors, espoirs and open. At major events, very young athletes (cadets) are also included. Espoirs are all athletes age 21-23 although they are also ranked in the open division. At the ISMF World Cup one also has rankings for espoirs to ease the transition from the junior division to open.
Anti-doping regulations of the International Anti-Doping Code must be followed. There are drug tests after every competition. Every team athlete is in addition required to be read to present him- or herself at any time for drug tests. Based on the ADAMS system, which was developed by WADA, every athlete who is a member of a national team must always notify officials of his or her whereabouts each day. That means athletes must be available for testing every day.
