IOC Athletes’ Commission turns 25
Meetings and Sporting Activities
The Athletes’ Commission meetings kick off this afternoon and will conclude with a joint meeting with the IOC Executive Board on Wednesday. The three days will also be punctuated with fun sporting activities as two teams made up of a mix of Commission members and IOC staff meet for a football friendly to be played this afternoon.
The Athletes' Commission has also actively participated in the work leading to the creation of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and is represented within all bodies of the Agency. The Commission supports and is participating in the implementation of a voluntary doping passport for athletes, developed by WADA. It warns athletes against the risks linked to the use of nutritional supplements, and campaigns for the international harmonisation of rules regarding the labeling of these products.
