Real sport is pure human energy.

Real sport is trust and respect for the system.

Real sport is respecting yourself and your fellow competitors.

Real sport is competition on a level playing field.

With this in mind, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) is implementing a world-class anti-doping program.

Vancouver 2010 Anti-Doping Program Mission

Vancouver 2010 Anti-Doping Program Mission

  • Deliver a state-of-the-art doping control program at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games to ensure all athletes can compete on a level playing field.
  • Leave a legacy by developing and implementing a leading anti-doping program focusing on pre-Games information and awareness programs to promote the values of doping-free sport.
  • Doping-free Games.

Paralympic athletes in all sports can be expected to be selected for doping control anytime and anywhere during both the out-of-competition and in-competition period.

VANOC expects to conduct up to 425 tests during the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.

The on-site World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accredited Doping Control Laboratory at the Richmond Olympic Oval is the most sophisticated in the history of the Paralympic Games and will analyze all urine and blood samples.

We encourage you all to take full advantage of the educational resources provided to increase your anti-doping knowledge and awareness and come prepared to the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.
