SportAccord and anti-doping service contract

WILL THESE MOVES CHANGE PEOPLE IN COMBAT SPORTS WITH MUSCLES LIKE ARNOLD'S IN FILM TWINS, WHEN DANNY ASKED HIM ABOUT THE BEES ATTACK THAT COULD HAPPENED TO HIS BROTHER TWIN?
The International Fencing Federation (FIE) is the first member of SportAccord to outsource the administration of its anti-doping programme and to sign a contract with SportAccord on the provision of such services.

“The FIE is proud to be the first international sport federation to cooperate in this way with SportAccord and its Doping-Free Sport Unit on anti-doping matters. Although Fencing is considered as a sport at low risk, this collaboration will definitely help our organisation benefit from a specific expertise, reduce costs as well as optimize our efforts in keeping Fencing clean,” says Maxim Paramonov, Secretary General of the FIE.

Hein Verbruggen, President of SportAccord: “One of SportAccord’s main objectives is to support our Members. We are happy if we can offer our help in areas of concern. We are looking forward to this collaboration and we are honoured by the trust FIE has in us. Anti-Doping is a sensitive matter and we will, of course, always comply with the FIE Anti-Doping Rules in force and will strictly respect confidentiality.”

According to the contract SportAccord will provide a number of services to the FIE. “In close collaboration with the FIE we analyzed their needs and developed a tailored service package,” says Fran├žoise Dagouret, Manager Doping-Free Sport Unit at SportAccord. For example, SportAccord will liaise directly with the Fencers registered in the FIE testing pool and give advice on how to provide whereabouts information through ADAMS, the web-based Anti-Doping Administration and Management System of WADA.
