WADA will be present through a number of programs at the 2006 Asian Games, to take place December 1-15 in Doha, Qatar.
WADA’s Independent Observers will monitor doping control and results management, while an Athlete Outreach team will interact with athletes and inform them about anti-doping in the Athletes Village. A Media Information booth will also be on hand during the first days of the Games in the Main Media Center. And ADAMS (Anti-Doping Administration & Management System), the web-based database management system developed by WADA, will be used by the Asian Games organizers to manage their doping control activities.
The Asian Games, which take place every four years, are to gather 11,000 athletes from 45 countries and regions in Doha.
