WADA Talks with Antony Scanlon

In this latest edition of WADA Talks, we sat down with Antony Scanlon, Executive Director of the International Golf Federation (IGF) to discuss Golf’s anti-doping program ahead of their much anticipated return to the Olympics after a 112 year hiatus.


On their main concerns, Scanlon admits that lack of education tops the list saying “we can’t do enough to make sure we are prepared for the Games and that the athletes understand their responsibilities.”

Discussing the anti-doping process ahead of the Games, Scanlon explains “as of the 6th of May, all of our players will become part of our registered testing pool. They will then be subject to ADAMS and the whereabouts system and we will be ensuring each athlete has already been tested before getting there.

WADA Talks sees the agency’s Senior Manager, Media Relations and Communications, Ben Nichols, interviewing leading figures from the athlete community, sport, government and other partners involved in the clean sport movement.
