IOC President Urges Sports to Comply with World Anti-Doping Code

At a meeting between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board and the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) held on March 25 in Denver as part of the Sportaccord Convention, the IOC President, Jacques Rogge, reiterated his strong support to the fight against doping and WADA’s work. He also urged all sports to comply with the World Anti-Doping Code.

The Olympic Charter provides that only sports that comply with the Code can be part of the program of the Olympic Games.

In addition, the IOC President endorsed the collective resource approach recommended by the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) in the establishment of an International Federations’ Anti-Doping Organization based on WADA’s Regional Anti-Doping Organizations’ (RADOs) model.
