Sports anti-doping agency.

SPORTS ANTI-DOPING AGENCY. An anti-doping agency was scheduled to be launched in Barbados in January to bring the Caribbean into conformity with world anti-doping standards in sports, reports AP (Dec. 30, 2005). The Regional Anti-Doping Organization will conduct tests, manage the findings, answer appeals and run anti-drug educational campaigns in the 15-member Caribbean Community. Nonmembers Bermuda and Cuba are also interested in joining the organization, said Adrian Lorde, head of the Barbados National Anti-Doping Commission. The agency is being set up in response to a request from the World Anti-Doping Agency, with funding for two years from the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Corporation, he said. The Montreal-based World Anti-Doping Agency was established in Nov. 1999 to promote the international fight against doping in sports.
