  • Global Athlete Start-Up Group Statement


    “When two icons of Olympic Sport speak of bullying and harassment at the global anti-doping regulator, you listen. WADA’s 'result' of its one-sided, whitewash of a so-called 'investigation' does nothing to assure the international athlete community that it respects them. It does the opposite.

    WADA has driven a coach and horses through athletes' rights today. We call on athletes to demand WADA put in place serious, meaningful reform that starts putting athletes first."
