New Beijing 2008" Section on WADA Web Site Details Anti-Doping Rules and WADA's Role at Olympic and Paralympic Games"

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to announce that it has developed a new “Beijing 2008” section of its Web site. This section features the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Anti-Doping Rules for the Games, as well as information about WADA’s role at the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games, including a special issue of WADA’s flagship magazine, Play True.

As the IOC and IPC 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. The “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 the IOC 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 of this issue 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.
