ISA Press Release - APRIL 2004
Information for WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency)
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 01 May 2004: - -
WADA has requested that each ISA NGB know what travel plans its athletes have for the month of July as WADA will be conducting out of competition testing. This is mostly for Sports included on the official Programme, but since surfing is a recognized sport, the ISA, (and all of its NGBs), comes under this umbrella of WADA and therefore; out of competition testing.
What this means is that WADA wants to know the exact addresses and exactly where the NGB athletes (those that participated in the last WSG in Ecuador), will be in the month of July 2004. As part of the WADA code that the ISA has signed, out of competition testing is a part of the code and can be conducted at any given time.
For those of you that did not participate in the WSG 2004, the ISA will need a list of athletes from the last WSG that your national team participated in, along with their addresses and travel plans for the month of July 2004. For those NGBs who have never participated, please send the ISA a list from your last national series.
The ISA would really appreciate this information as soon as possible to be able to send it in. Please send it to Maile Aguerre at the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org The WADA code goes in to full effect with the beginning of the Olympic Games this August.
Mahalo for your cooperation.
