Canada adopts Anti-Doping Code
VANCOUVER (CP) - The Canadian Olympic Committee unanimously adopted the World Anti-Doping Code on Saturday (May 3, 2003).
The code which was endorsed by sports organizations and governments in Copenhagen last month, sets out uniform anti-doping rules across all sports and countries.
The code specifies a single all-encompassing list of banned substances, mandates two-year suspensions for a first serious violation and life ban for a second, and sets standards for testing and appeals procedures.
"I am particularly pleased that the Canadian Olympic Committee, which is an opinion leader in this area, has quickly and unanimously adopted the code," said Dick Pound, president of the Montreal-based World Anti-Doping Agency. "I look forward to working together in the fight against doping in sport."
Sports organizations are required to enact the code before next year's Olympics in Athens, Greece. Governments have until the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy.
