Leaving a Legacy of Clean Sports to Future Generations
Doping is an act that not only runs counter to such sporting values as the spirit of fair play and teamwork, but also poses serious health hazards and results in the loss of public trust in the integrity of sport.
To protect clean athletes, The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) is collaborating closely with related bodies to implement a range of anti-doping activities including doping control during the Games.
In addition, Tokyo 2020 is not merely focusing on anti-doping activities during the Tokyo 2020 Games, but also aims to provide the world with a legacy of clean sports through its Games operations.
This page introduces the anti-doping activities leading up to and during the Tokyo 2020 Games.
The Japan Anti-Doping Agency
The Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA) was established in 2001 as the sole specialist agency to manage and operate anti-doping activities in Japan. It was founded with the mission of protecting the integrity of sport and clean athletes, andestablishing a role model in the spirit of ‘Play True’. . JADA proactively conducts a range of activities, including the collection, management and provision of information related to anti-doping; education, enlightenment and research activities; and the conducting of stringent doping control.
On 2 October 2017, Tokyo 2020 signed a Memorandum of Understanding with JADA, whereby both organisations pledged to utilise their respective resources and benefit from JADA's anti-doping experience. The organisations will work together on preparations for Games operations towards the successful delivery of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
