Maltese athletes and the Anti-Doping test

Friday, August 9, 2013, 16:30

The Anti-Doping Commission of Malta carried out a total of 101 doping tests on Maltese athletes last year, according to figures released by the World Anti-Doping Agency this week.

Out of those tests, five, or five per cent, were positive. The report did not go into which practitioners of which sporting discipline had tested positive.

The five per cent rate is, however, higher than the global average for Olympic sports, 0.99 per cent, and also for non-Olympic sports, 3.35 per cent, for doping test failures, known as Adverse Analytical Findings.

    Name and shame. But how can this commission be considered neutral and independent when appointed by government and run by Kms and moc officials.
