The IPC have demonstrated strong leadership. The impact of the Russian state-sanctioned doping programme has been shocking and widespread. The McLaren Report findings were of serious concern for everyone committed to clean and honest sport. Compliance to the IPC’s Anti-Doping Code is vital to ensure that all Para-Athletes, Paralympians and aspiring Paralympians, are able to compete on a level competitive playing field.
PNZ reiterates the importance of protecting clean Para-Athletes and upholding the values of Paralympic sport. We are extremely fortunate in New Zealand to have an excellent National Anti-Doping Agency, Drug Free Sport NZ conduct regular testing of New Zealand athletes both within and out of competition and inform and educate all those involved with in New Zealand Sport.
