POLADA’s Athlete Committee has been established

First meeting of the Athlete Committee affiliated with the Polish Anti-Doping Agency was held on 30 May 2019. The aim of the committee is to involve athletes in the creation of POLADA anti-doping programs, as well as to strengthen the global system of combating doping in sport. The meeting, which focused on the current international situation and the POLADA anti-doping program, was also attended by a representative of POLADA.

“The creation of the athlete committee will allow for greater participation of athletes in developing the anti-doping policy, and thus for more effective fight against doping,” said Monika Pyrek, who is also a member of the POLADA Council.

“Athletes’ voice is important to us and allows us to implement more effective and sustainable anti-doping programs.
