The WADA Doping Quiz is a new educational tool that provides coaches, athletes and other support staff a user friendly and interactive way to learn more about the dangers of doping and their responsibilities under the World Anti-Doping Code. The Doping Quiz – available in 15 languages – is an interactive computer game that tests the player’s knowledge about anti-doping. It can now be easily accessed through the FIS web site by clicking here.
The fight against doping in sport also continues to expand to new regions of the world. Recently three new Regional Anti-Doping Organizations (RADO) have been established. The new Central African RADO is being hosted by Cameroon while, in South Asia, a new RADO was established based out of the Maldives. For FIS of special importance is the recent establishment of the new Eastern Europe RADO in Belarus. The Belarus government and NOC have agreed to provide office and staff to coordinate anti-doping development in the region.
The RADOs are part of WADA’s anti-doping development program. It helps countries and organizations to develop anti-doping programs in regions of the world where no quality doping control programs have been established. In particular, the program brings together several countries and stakeholders within a geographic area to mobilize and pool resources for anti-doping under the umbrella of an independent Regional Anti-Doping Organization (RADO). The overall goal is to ensure that all athletes in all countries and in all sports are subject to the same anti-doping protocols and processes. The specific objective of the RADO program is to have all countries of the world engaged in anti-doping programs by 2010.
