Interacting with WADA, IOC, UCI and ASADA: A Cycling Australia Perspective
AbstractTen years ago the World Anti Doping Association (WADA) was formed. Under the leadership of Dick Pound this organisation aggressively formed collaborations with national anti-doping agencies such as the Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority (ASADA) and International Sport Organisations such as the Union Cyclist Internationale (UCI). Of critical importance was the direct link between WADA and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) which led to financial support and leverage when interacting with many popular Olympic sports. WADA rapidly become a world-wide agency with 35 analytic laboratories located in 32 different countries. Some have estimated that in addition to important athlete education programs, WADA have been responsible for more than 1.2 million blood and urine tests of sportsmen and women over the past 5 years. WADA also pours millions of dollars into scientific research every year in their ongoing attempt to deter athletes from using illegal ergogenic aids.
