Play True Magazine Explores Evolution of the Fight against Doping in Sport

A new issue of WADA’s flagship magazine, Play True, is now available.

This issue, titled Record Pace, retraces the evolution of the global campaign against doping in sport, beginning with the revolutionary act of Sport and Government uniting in 1999 and continuing through to the Third World Conference on Doping in Sport, to take place November 15-17, 2007, in Madrid, Spain.

Among items featured are a review of major advances and milestones in the fight against doping since WADA’s inception, including the making and revision of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), and a historical look at past World Conferences on Doping in Sport.

Other features include a review of the ground-breaking work that WADA has achieved in helping to establish regional anti-doping organizations, presentations of recent WADA athlete outreach activities, and a contribution by renowned bioethicist Dr. Thomas Murray on why arguments calling for liberalization of doping in sport have fatal flaws. This issue also contains a pull-out brochure highlighting stakeholders’ obligations in relation to compliance with the Code and WADA’s resources available to assist them, 2008 being the first year that signatories must publicly report their status vis-à-vis Code compliance.
