WADA posts IOC Anti-Doping Rules for Tokyo Olympics

The World Anti-Doping Agency has posted the IOC’s Anti-Doping Rules for the re-scheduled Tokyo Olympics.

A WADA statement said “At the request of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and as was the case for previous Olympic Games, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) posts the IOC’s Anti-Doping Rules (Rules) and accompanying circular letter applicable to the re-scheduled Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (2020 Games) taking place in July and August 2021.”

The IOC is the WADA Code signatory responsible for the Rules of the Olympics Games and has amended the Tokyo 2020 Rules so that they are now in line with the 2021 WADA Code and International Standards. The Rules will be applicable from the opening of the Olympic Village on 13 July until the closing ceremony on 8 August.

During this period all athletes are subject to the doping controls of the International Testing Agency as the IOC has delegated some of its responsibilities related to the implementation of the doping control process during the Games.
