Athlete Groups Join Forces to Contribute to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Reform Process

Athletes welcome the opportunity provided by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to be a part of WADA’s efforts toward further structural reforms. The reforms submitted to WADA by our international group are intended to enhance athletes’ confidence in the World Anti-Doping Agency and the global clean sport initiative.

Our submission has focused on increased independence, transparency and accountability as well as the importance of embedding human rights throughout the entire anti-doping movement. To further enhance the rights of athletes to an effective and fair system of justice, we are also calling on the separation of power between the legislative, executive, and judicial functions of WADA and the anti-doping system. This must include a review of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

We are pleased that other athletes and athlete groups have also submitted reform proposals to WADA. Athletes want to be part of the solution to ensure WADA and the clean sport movement are working in the best interest to protect their number one stakeholder, the athletes.
