WADA encourages Clean Sport community to Report Doping


The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is encouraging supporters of clean sport worldwide to help protect the clean athlete by reporting information relating to doping.

Clean sport proponents – including members of the public, media, anti-doping stakeholders and athletes – are encouraged to report doping via a new page on WADA’s website (this page is also in Russian language).

Reporting Doping will help WADA and the anti-doping community in its efforts to uphold the integrity of sport, and, in the short term, in collating information that may be of use to the three-person Independent Commission that was formed by WADA earlier this year to investigate allegations stemming from the ARD German Television Documentary that aired last December.

The Independent Commission’s role is to investigate the validity of allegations of doping practices; corrupt practices around sample collection and results management; and, other ineffective administration of anti-doping processes that implicate Russia, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), athletes, coaches, trainers, doctors and other members of athletes’ entourages; as well as, the accredited laboratory based in Moscow and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

WADA urges anyone with doping information to get in touch, in confidence, to share information related to the above allegations or any other doping suspicions or concerns.
