The methods used by the world Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) are very important in regulate the performance of athletes all over the world. These methods are very strict methods, which promote a healthy, and safety for athletes, with a purpose of trying to improve high performance’s qualities and enhance the level of playing field. The WADA methods are based on three ethical principles of the Global Business Standard Codex (GBSC), which is citizenship, dignity and fairness principles.
The WADA placed the citizenship principle to regulate and support the performance of athletes. Laws and rules are very important method assert to maintain the balance of the world and sustain high performances in sport. According to Houlihan WADA is the original document of sport policy in which all athletes have to abide by the rules and laws (Houlihan 2004). Hence, WADA established to protect athlete’s rights in sport industry. On the other hand, WADA enacted a list of illegal drugs and organized programs to prevent the use of drugs in sport. However, time is changing, technology are modernize, people with high quality of technology discover new drugs which can affect athletes’ performances and their playing qualities at the field. The WADA recognised these threats thus WADA keep updating, adding and changing the list of drug to forbid the development of illegal drug in port industry and to be fair with all of the athletes. For example “one of the most significant changes to the 2012 list is the removal of formoterol from ‘Section 3 Beta-2 Agonists’ of the List when taken by inhalation at therapeutic dosages” (WADA 2012). Athletes will get penalty if they took the drug that has not found in the past. WADA also used a credit in labs to make sure they are right in making laws of sport. Moreover, WADA is using the high quality of technology to find and prove that drugs would have a bad affect to athlete’s health to warn and also encourage athletes to obey regulation to keep them safe and free from any kind of harm. In result, laws and rules set to maintain the safety of all people involved in activities (Knietics 2009) therefor follow the rules and laws are responsibility of all athletes. Regulation and policy used to ensure that all the activities are fair, games are playing in the same format, right time, right location and able to understand how the game been instructed and played. The WADA citizenship principle servers as one of the main standard of WADA’s roll in society, which is expected employee’s respect and follow the laws of community. The strict methods used by WADA very important to regulate the performance of athletes. Furthermore, WADA methods used to promote healthy and safety for athletes include testing, such as random testing in and out of competition can help to regulate the performance of athletes and decrease the number of drug risk taker. Testing pool is one of WADA methods, which are testing athletes regularly in time, this is compulsory to all athletes. It is very important to define doping and conscious about its harmful effect. Doping is using drug to take the advantage over others in competition, (Szittener 2012) and Szittener demonstrates that doping affect the health of athletes and their safety. Athletes doping in sport may result in suddenly death while playing or would be result in physical, mental, emotional, and future generation consequences. Hence, Athlete’s required to update information to WADA, this information for the purpose of anti-doping testing, athletes who do not provided enough information or not attended the test in a period shall a WADA rules violation. This method assists every athlete to understand the laws and rules and its important and always be ready for the test. Regarding the time period of available of the NADO is required athletes to be available for less than 30 minutes a day to testing (Hanstad 2010). WADA also place random testing athletes outside the competition to keep them safe...
