This section outlines WADA’s role at the upcoming Olympic Games in London (UK).

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is responsible for the anti-doping program, including testing and results management.

The IOC Anti-Doping Rules for the London Olympic Games can be found here.

WADA assumes a number of roles in the lead-up to, and during, the Olympic Games. These include:

•Pre-Games testing

WADA has published a special issue of its flagship magazine, Play True, outlining these roles and presenting members of the IO and Outreach Teams in London.

Along with regular features, such an editorial from WADA's President John Fahey, Play True also contains an editorial from IOC President Dr. Jacques Rogge, and editorial from UK Anti-Doping Chief Andy Parkinson, a profile of WADA's Athlete Committee member David Millar, and much more.
