WADA Director General delivers speech at Tackling Doping in Sport

WADA’s Director General, Olivier Niggli, today delivered a speech at the Tackling Doping in Sport Conference in London, United Kingdom.

Niggli discussed the path forward that will define the future of anti-doping for years to come. He also touched on the importance of shaping an anti-doping system that meets the needs of clean athletes, and is truly fit for the future; led by a stronger, more independent WADA.

Of note, Niggli presented WADA’s key priorities, which were established following months of debate and dialogue with athletes and other stakeholders in the anti-doping community during Think Tanks, Summits and government meetings across the globe. Areas of focus include, among others, Code Compliance, WADA’s new Whistleblower Program and the Agency’s Governance Structure.
