Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 : Anti-doping testing report April 2017 - January 2018 / Pre-Games Anti-Doping Taskforce. - Lausanne : International Olympic Committee (IOC), 2018 Contents: - Anti-doping testing report 1 April - 31 October 2017 - Anti-doping testing report November 2017 - Anti-doping testing report December 2017 - Anti-doping testing report January 2018 __________________________________________________ The Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF), in collaboration with the PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee (POCOG), oversaw the doping controls and results management during the Olympic Winter Games, on behalf of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), to ensure an independent overview of the anti-doping programme. In total, 3,149 anti-doping tests were conducted during PyeongChang 2018, making it the most robust anti-doping programme in the history of the Olympic Winter Games. Of these tests, 1,393 were in competition, and 1,756 were out of competition. Of the 2,963 accredited athletes, 1,615 were tested at least once, representing 54 per cent, with the majority being tested out of competition. Of the 3,149 samples collected between 1 and 25 February 2018, and as registered in the Anti-Doping Administration Management System (ADAMS), 2,261 were urine samples; 594 were blood samples; and 294 were blood passports. In the lead-up to the Games, the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) Committee, appointed by the GAISF, reviewed and formally recognised 24 TUEs granted by National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) and International Federations (IFs). During the Games, the TUE Committee granted 12 TUEs. Following the recommendations of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the local organisers used the same sample kits that were used for Rio 2016, developed by Swiss manufacturer Berlinger.
Welcome to Doping.nl, the
Anti-Doping Knowledge Center.
This site has been established to host information about doping in the broadest sense of the word, and about doping prevention.
The Anti-Doping Authority Netherlands (the Dutch Doping Authority for short) established this site and maintains it. The Doping Authority was founded in 1989 and it is one of the oldest NADOs in the world. Doping.nl was developed with financial support from the Dutch Ministry for Health, Welfare and Sport.
This website was established because of the importance that the Doping Authority and the Ministry attach to the dissemination of information relevant to doping prevention. Disclosing and supplying relevant information is one of the cornerstones in the fight against doping in sport. However, in practice, a significant amount of information is still not available, or only available to a limited group of users. We therefore decided to bring together all the relevant information in a single site: Doping.nl.
The Doping Authority aims to supply as much information through this website as possible on an ongoing basis. The information will be varied but will focus primarily on: WADA documents like the World Anti-Doping Code, the International Standards like the Prohibited List, Doping Regulations, scientific articles and abstracts, decisions by disciplinary bodies (mainly CAS decisions).As well as making documents available, the Doping Authority aims to supply searchable documents when possible, and to add relevant keywords to ensure easy access.
In the future, Doping.nl will also become a digital archive containing older information that is no longer available elsewhere.
This site has been designed for use by anti-doping professionals such as National Anti-Doping Organisations and International Federations but also for students, journalists and other people interested in the subject.

IAAF Taskforce Report to the IAAF Congress about the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) - 6 March 2018
IAAF Taskforce report to IAAF Congress, 6 March 2018 / Rune Andersen. - International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). - Monaco : IAAF, 201 ____________________________________________________ Rune Andersen, the independent chairman of the IAAF Taskforce, delivered its latest report on the reinstatement of the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF). The Taskforce’s recommendation, which Council unanimously approved, was that RusAF was not ready for reinstatement. While some conditions have been met, the commission reported, several key areas have still not been satisfied by RusAF and RUSADA including providing a test distribution plan for 2018 that shows an adequate amount of testing and demonstrating that is has fixed legal issues making it unable to enforce provisional doping bans of athletics coaches. Additionally, RUSADA has still not yet been reinstated by WADA as a fully compliant independent body. Council has agreed that if progress is not made, further measures should be discussed at the July Council meeting as a means of prompting greater efforts in Russia, including withdrawing permission for Russian athletes to compete as neutrals athletes, and ultimately taking the steps necessary to recommend to Congress that RusAF be expelled from IAAF membership.

WADA Ethics Panel - Geolocalisation of athletes for out-of-competition drug testing: ethical considerations
Geolocalisation of athletes for out-of-competition drug testing: ethical considerations. Position statement by the WADA Ethics Panel / Pascal Borry, Timothy Caulfield, Xavier Estivill, Sigmund Loland, Michael McNamee, Bartha Maria Knoppers. - (British Journal of Sports Medicine (2 March 2018) : p. 1-4). - PMID: 29500253. - DOI: 10.1136/bjsports-2017-098299 ________________________________________________ Abstract Through the widespread availability of location-identifying devices, geolocalisation could potentially be used to place athletes during out-of-competition testing. In light of this debate, the WADA Ethics Panel formulated the following questions: (1) should WADA and/or other sponsors consider funding such geolocalisation research projects?, (2) if successful, could they be proposed to athletes as a complementary device to Anti-Doping Administration and Management System to help geolocalisation and reduce the risk of missed tests? and (3) should such devices be offered on a voluntary basis, or is it conceivable that they would be made mandatory for all athletes in registered testing pools? In this position paper, the WADA Ethics Panel concludes that the use of geolocalisation could be useful in a research setting with the goal of understanding associations between genotype, phenotype and environment; however, it recognises that the use of geolocalisation as part of or as replacement of whereabouts rules is replete with ethical concerns. While benefits remain largely hypothetical and minimal, the potential invasion of privacy and the data security threats are real. Considering the impact on privacy, data security issues, the societal ramifications of offering such services and various pragmatic considerations, the WADA Ethics Panel concludes that at this time, the use of geolocalisation should neither be mandated as a tool for disclosing whereabouts nor implemented on a voluntary basis.
