WADA issues dope testing guidelines amid coronavirus pandemic

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… WADA said anti-doping organizations should continue to obtain information on whereabouts of athletes normally gathered to facilitate out-of-competition testing. Athletes are still responsible for obtaining therapeutic use exemptions and “should be reminded that they can still be tested at any place, any time,” WADA said. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) issued new guidelines on Friday to facilitate continued testing amid the constraints of the coronavirus pandemic. The World Anti-Doping Agency has issued guidelines aimed at maintaining anti-doping efforts safely through the coronavirus pandemic Noting that the spread of COVID-19 had evolved into “an even greater health and societal emergency” since its March 6 communique, WADA urged Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) to act in accordance with restrictions placed by local health authorities “to ensure proper protection of athletes and doping control personnel, while protecting the integrity of doping control programs, particularly in the lead-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.” WADA’s latest guidelines advise anti-doping organizations to make sure that sample collectors are free from any symptoms of illness. Collectors should also ask athletes if they have any symptoms or if they or anyone at the collection site are in the groups thought to be at heightened risk from COVID-19. If test collection personnel are found to have contracted the virus, athletes they tested should be informed and vice versa, WADA said. Protective wear such as masks should be used and work surfaces disinfected, and if local conditions limit what testing can occur then ADOs should “consider focusing their testing program on targeted athletes from high risk sports and disciplines,” WADA said. In locations where testing programs can’t continue, WADA said, it and other anti-doping organizations and sports federations will work together “once the situation begins to return to normal” to identify gaps in testing “particularly as it relates to the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.” Promoted Content12 Movies That Almost Ended Their Stars’ Careers6 TV Characters Whose Departures Have Made The Shows Better7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way8 Things You Didn’t Know About CoffeeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?A Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

I’m going nowhere – Pardew

first_img It was the manager’s first comment since the circus which has accompanied Kinnear’s unveiling as the new senior executive in charge of all football-related matters at St James’ Park pitched tent on Gallowgate. Pardew and Kinnear met for the first time since the 66-year-old Irishman was appointed on Tuesday, and Press Association Sport understands the initial talks were amicable. But it remains to be seen whether or not he and highly rated chief scout Graham Carr can forge a working partnership with a man who has a high opinion of his own abilities, but whose return to St James’, where he was manager for less than six months during the 2008-09 season, has been greeted with incredulity by the club’s fans. Llambias, however, has already voted with his feet and decided the time was right to end his five-year stay on Tyneside. The former casino boss has played a key role in the day-to-day running of the club and was heavily involved in its transfer business, although some of those duties have now passed to Kinnear. Llambias’ departure was announced in a statement issued at around 8.40am, 20 minutes before the fixtures for the new season, which handed the Magpies a tough start away at Manchester City, were due to be published. It said: “The club can announce that managing director Derek Llambias has resigned from his position with immediate effect.” Llambias, who is currently out of the country, was diplomatic in his comments less than 24 hours after he had welcomed Kinnear to the club. He said: “I have had an incredible journey during my five years at the club, including some challenging times. I will reflect with great fondness on my time in the North East and in me, Newcastle United have a lifelong supporter. I want to thank the staff for their hard work, our fans for their support of the club, and wish them all well for the future.” Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has insisted he is going nowhere after the resignation of managing director Derek Llambias plunged the club into fresh chaos. The 51-year-old confirmed his intention in a brief message to the city’s evening newspaper as news of Llambias’ departure, which came in the wake of Joe Kinnear’s controversial arrival as director of football, emerged. Pardew told The Chronicle: “I’m staying – to take the club up the league.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
