WADA Launches New Video Outlining Doping Control Process for Athletes

In order to provide athletes with basic information about their rights and responsibilities in the doping control process, WADA, in partnership with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC), has developed a new doping control video.

This catchy 5-minute video is intended to provide a general overview of the doping control process while raising awareness of the athlete’s rights and responsibilities. The video, primarily targeting young athletes and those who will be subject to doping control for the first time, outlines each of the following phases of the doping control process: athlete selection, athlete notification, sample collection, laboratory analysis, and results management.

The video, currently available in English and French, can be ordered by stakeholders at no cost for use as part of their information and education efforts. Those interested in producing a co-branded version of the video with their own logo or a version in their own language (voiceover or subtitles) can contact WADA at info@wada-ama.org.
