Worlds of Sport and Government Prepare to Shape Future of Anti-Doping in Sport

The worlds of sport and government are preparing to convene in Johannesburg, South Africa just 11 days from now to help shape the future of one of the most pressing issues faced in sport today – doping.

The much-anticipated Fourth World Conference on Doping in Sport, which runs from November 12 – 15, 2013, will see the good and the great of the anti-doping in sport community come together to discuss and approve the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code. Furthermore, on the final day of the Conference, Friday, November 15, WADA’s Foundation Board will announce the next President of the World Anti-Doping Agency, who will succeed current President John Fahey on January 1, 2014.

Media will play a crucial role in raising awareness of the Conference, as well as helping shape the discussion and debate relating to anti-doping, and WADA therefore encourages all media to stay updated on Conference matters through the official website, www.wada2013.org

All the latest news, photos and videos of the Conference sessions will be available online, as well as live streaming of the Conference sessions. Media that require broadcast quality footage for their own editorial purposes can also request this by contacting media@wada-ama.org

Media are reminded that accreditation for the World Conference closes this coming Tuesday, November 5.

More information regarding the on-site media services can be found on the World Conference website.

Thank you for your continued support in the fight against doping in sport.
