IAAF’s Largest Ever Anti-Doping Programme to Take Place in Osaka
The 2007 edition of these World Championships, which take place in Osaka, Japan between 25 August and 2 September 2007, will see more than 1000 samples collected, both before and during the competition, eclipsing the 885 tests conducted at the last World Championships in 2005.
“The IAAF is determined to ensure that these Championships highlight our on-going and aggressive commitment to the war on doping,” said IAAF President Lamine Diack.
“We know that the overwhelming majority of our athletes compete fairly, so it is for their sake that we must do all we can to chase down and sanction those who attempt to cheat and lie through the use of doping practices.”
