code

WADA has promoted an International Media Symposium which has taken place at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne (Switzerland) to examine media and communications issues surrounding the fights against doping in sport.

Our president Ennio Falsoni attended such a meeting being a journalist himself .

Meeting was leaded by WADA's freshly elected president, the Hon. John Fahey from Australia, and by WADA's General Director Mr. David Howman.

In their report, both Mr. Fahey and Mr. Howman have gone through their 9 years history and stressed the fact tha systematic doping in sports can lead to perils for athletes' health  or event to death , not to talk about  the ethic problems behind such a behaviour.

WADA has launched a global  antidoping fight and looking for harmonization and cooperation with Governments and NOCs and  an education campaign for a "genuine cultural change" in our future society.

WADA  has strengthen the CODE -Firmness and Fairness - and adopted  the Athlete Passport.
