In November 1999 at the initiative of several sports organizations, including the IOC (International Olympic Committee), as well as the governments of several countries, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was created. WADA’s motto is “Fair Play,” and the World Anti-Doping Code is the main document regulating the work of anti-doping services. Its new edition came into force in 2015.
Currently, the use of prohibited drugs is one of the most important problems in world sports. Doping causes great harm to the health of sportsmen, but the main problem is the ethical one: the use of doping kills the idea of honest competitions, underlying sports and the Olympic movement.
The Cycling Federation fully supports the observance of anti-doping rules and is ready to cooperate with the National Agency (ANAD – National Antidoping Agency) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
