back CEADO CONGRATULATES WITOLD BANKA TO HIS ELECTION AS NEW WADA-PRESIDENT

The members of the Central European Anti-Doping Organization (CEADO) have a very good personal relationship with Mr. Banka and wish him all the best for his upcoming chances and challenges. CEADO fully supports his aims to raise the engagement of athletes, to ensure a stronger WADA as global regulator and to establish an “Anti-Doping Solidarity Fund” to harmonize the worldwide anti-doping efforts.

CEADO welcomes the endorsement of the World Anti-Doping Code 2021 and the International Standards. Among many other important improvements these are the highlights:
  • Emphasis on the importance of education as crucial prevention strategy
  • Establishment of alternative procedures for recreational athletes
  • Introduction of a new concept to handle recreational drugs
  • Better protection of whistleblowers
CEADO is looking forward to implement these new rules and regulations into the national legal framework to ensure the protection of clean athletes as best as possible.
