Pre-Games Anti-Doping Taskforce and Monthly Testing Figures

The IOC and WADA have set up a Task Force ahead of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 to optimise and monitor the testing of athletes.

The programme involves a recommendation on minimum levels of testing on prospective athletes through a coordinated effort amongst all relevant Anti-Doping Organisations at national and international levels. The aim of the Pre-Games Taskforce is to identify potential athletes and make recommendations to the relevant organisations: the International Federations (IFs) and the National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) to review their existing testing strategy and plans, and complement with the recommendations by the Taskforce where necessary. The level of testing per Sport and discipline is adapted according to its risk assessment which has been determined by WADA together with the respective International Federation.

FIS welcomes this initiative and works in close collaboration with a large number of NADOs.

As part of this programme, the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations have agreed to publish their testing figures on a monthly basis broken down by sport nationalities.

Please find the figures for the months September and October 2017 below. The next figures will be published by the 15th of the following month.
