Oslo 2011 Underlines FIS Zero Tolerance on Doping

FasterSkierFebruary 25, 2011

The FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2011 in Oslo will feature one of the most comprehensive anti-doping programs at a major international sports event following the Olympic Winter Games. In addition to in-competition testing after all competitions, the program includes a significant out-of-competition testing program, implemented in conjunction with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Similar programs were already executed prior to the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships since 2003 and the Olympic Winter Games in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

Testing in Oslo will be carried out in co-operation with Anti-Doping Norway, one of the leading National Anti-Doping Organizations. Pre-competition blood testing will be carried out on all Cross-Country and Nordic Combined competitors by the FIS-appointed specialist agency, PWC, and approximately 420 pre-competition blood tests will be conducted.

For all events in the three Nordic disciplines, the number of athletes subject to post-competition doping controls is the top 4 plus 2 at random, as per FIS Rules. In total, approximately 130 post-competition controls will be carried out during the championships.
