The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games (Tokyo Olympics) is finally around the corner and will be held from 23 July – 8 August 2021 in Tokyo, Japan. While our Hong Kong athletes are preparing to compete at the best of their abilities at Tokyo Olympics, Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) has also been working on various aspects of anti-doping to help ensure athletes and athlete support personnel are well-prepared before the Tokyo Olympics.
Not only is sports performance the main focus of the Olympic Games, but anti-doping also plays an important role to promote the integrity of sport and protect clean athletes at the Games. HKADC has been carrying out no-advance notice Pre-Games Doping Tests on our athletes to ensure that they are clean to compete at the Tokyo Olympics. Pre-Games Anti-Doping Briefing will also be conducted to remind the Hong Kong, China Delegation to the Tokyo Olympics of key areas of the Anti-Doping Rules (the Rules), such as Anti-Doping Rules Violations (ADRVs) and testing procedures, etc.
HKADC has also prepared an Anti-Doping pamphlet specifically for the Tokyo Olympics which includes highlights of the Rules and some useful Anti-Doping tips for the delegations. The pamphlet can be downloaded here.
Wishing the Hong Kong, China Delegation every success at the Tokyo Olympics!
