Rationale behind the Anti-Doping Policy:
The Wushu Council Australia condemns doping as fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.
Anti-doping programs, including documents such as this 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 purposes of this 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.
