Montreal, February 4, 2003 – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announced today that it will launch a new website this week. The new site will be available beginning February 5 at www.wada-ama.org.
“We believe our new website better reflects WADA’s mission and priorities,” said Harri Syväsalmi, the organization’s director general. “It is more user-friendly and provides more information, not just about WADA, but about doping in general.”
On the new site, users can find out about the latest developments regarding the World Anti-Doping Code, WADA’s outreach program, and the World Conference on Doping in Sport, which will take place March 3-5 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Visitors can also link directly to The True Game, WADA’s interactive game aimed at educating athletes regarding doping, and the Passport program, an initiative through which athletes can demonstrate their commitment to doping-free sport.
In addition, the site will feature for the first time articles in the press about WADA and doping in sport from the Reuters News Service. These articles will be updated regularly. A calendar on the site’s front page will allow users to monitor important upcoming events in which WADA will participate.
WADA’s new site was designed by Norway-based N3Sport, a provider of software services to sports organizations.
