Triathlon Australia condemns doping as fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.
Anti-doping programs, including documents such as the Triathlon Australia Anti-Doping Policy, seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport. The Essence of sport at all levels in Australia upholds the principles of Fairness, Respect, Responsibility and Safety.
The purpose of the Triathlon Australia Anti-Doping Policy and the anti-doping programs which it supports are:
- To protect Athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for Athletes worldwide; and
- To ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programs at the international and national level with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping.
What is the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA)?
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is a government statutory authority that is Australia's driving force for pure performance in sport.
ASADA's mission is to protect Australia's sporting integrity through the elimination of doping. To achieve its mission ASADA focuses on three key themes - to deter, detect, and enforce:
ASADA deters prohibited doping practices in sport via education, doping control (testing), advocacy and the coordination of Australia's anti-doping program;
ASADA detects a breach of a sport's anti-doping policy via its doping control (testing) and investigation programs; and
ASADA enforces any breach of a policy by ensuring those violating anti-doping rules are prosecuted and sanctioned.
ASADA’s Purpose: To protect Australia's sporting integrity through the elimination of doping.
ASADA’s Vision: Australia’s driving force for pure performance in sport.
