New Play True Magazine Outlines Key Changes to Stronger World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards

A new issue of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) flagship magazine, Play True, is now available.

This issue, entitled “Levelling the Playing Field,” highlights key amendments to the World Anti-Doping Code—the document harmonizing anti-doping regulations in all sports and all countries—and its related International Standards. These revised documents, which will go into effect on January 1, 2009, will help further strengthen anti-doping programs worldwide, including by providing for an increase of sanctions in doping cases involving aggravating circumstances in all sports.

Play True also provides an in-depth review of discussions and achievements from the Third WADA Gene Doping Symposium, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and shares interviews with experts from the field.

Among other features of this issue are a look at WADA’s activities at the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games; an interview with the new President of the International Olympic Committee Athlete Commission, former sprinter Frank Fredericks; and updates on WADA’s activities and programs.
