Thanks to the National Anti Doping Organisation (NADO) for inviting me to address participants of this workshop.

 

The workshop has as its theme “Building awareness and advocacy to eliminate doping in Sports”; a theme and a workshop, I believe that are timely given the recent fall out of grace of a number of athletes on the international and regional scenes due to the use of enhancing substances.  Luckily for us in Dominica, we have not had such incident and I do hope such will always be the case hence the need for us to continue building awareness and to continue advocating in order to ensure that our athletes are drug free.

Yet another member country of the Caribbean RADO has formed their own National Anti-Doping Organization, a sure indication of the growing awareness and importance of the move to eradicate and educate on doping in sport.  Dominica officially launched their NADO on the June 3rd 2013.
