Goes into effect January 1st, 2015mewmewmew13 said:So WADA and the new penalties that come into effect Jan 1 w/r to anyone working with banned dopers...??
...or am I missing something upthread..
http://cyclingtips.com.au/2014/12/david-howman-interview-how-wada-is-continuing-to-knuckle-down-on-doping-in-cycling/World Anti Doping Agency Director General David Howman has confirmed a new weapon in the fight against doping, namely a rule due to come into existence on January 1 under which penalties will apply to anyone working with banned personnel, with those who have otherwise been found to have engaged in doping-related activities and even with intermediaries who are acting as a go-between between these and athletes.
“We got this new prohibitive association clause coming in,” he said. “With that, from January 1 we will have to notify athletes and others of a list of people that we know are banned or have been criminally convicted in order to ensure that they don’t associate with these characters.
“If athletes do, then they can be sanctioned. It’s quite a big step forward after January 1; I think it’s going to be a big help with banned individuals.”
1. I'm curious to see this list.
2. I'm equally curious to see the definition of "associate."
