Beijing Issue of Play True Magazine Previews WADA’s Anti-Doping Role at Olympic and Paralympic Games

The Beijing issue of WADA's flagship magazine, Play True, is now available. As the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee prepare for their anti-doping activities during this year's Summer Games, WADA puts in motion the resources and expertise that will oversee a range of important supporting responsibilities. This "Beijing 2008" issue of Play True profiles WADA's roles, including sending an Independent Observers mission, delivering Athlete Outreach and participating in the Pre-Games Testing Task Force.

Play True also features a guest editorial from IOC President Jacques Rogge on his policy of zero tolerance for cheaters, as well as an in-depth interview with Sir Craig Reedie, Chairman of WADA's Finance and Administration Committee, on resources and funding of the global fight against doping in sport.

Among other features are a report from WADA's Athlete Committee on its latest gathering, a look at what stakeholders' obligations are in relation to World Anti-Doping Code compliance reporting in 2008, and highlights of the growing success of ADAMS, the Web-based database management system for anti-doping organizations and athletes.
