Anti-Doping

Anti-Doping

On 24th February 2010, Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS) accepted the World Anti-Doping Code. These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in conformance with ADS’s responsibilities under the Code, and are in furtherance of ADS’s continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport in Singapore. Together with the Singapore Sports Council (SSC), ADS strives to complement the World Anti Doping Agency's efforts in its fight against doping in sport and promote the values of "Friendship, Solidarity, and Fair Play".

These Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes, Athlete Support Personnel, and other Persons accept these Anti-Doping Rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport-specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping principles in a global and harmonized manner, are distinct in nature and, therefore, not intended to be subject to or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal proceedings or employment matters. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of the anti-doping rules in the Code and the fact that these Anti-Doping Rules represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world with an interest in fair sport.

 

Anti-doping programmes seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport. These intrinsic values are often referred to as “the spirit of sport”, and are the essence of Olympism and how we play true. The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human spirit, body and mind, and is characterized by the following values:

·         Ethics, fair play and honesty

·         Health

·         Excellence in performance

·         Character and education

·         Fun and joy

·         Teamwork

·         Dedication and commitment

·         Respect for rules and laws

·         Respect for self and other Participants

·         Courage

·         Community and solidarity

Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.
