World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has confirmed that Sierra Leone became the 186th nation to abide by the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport after signing the convention.
“We are delighted that Sierra Leone has become the latest State to show its commitment to clean sport through its ratification of the UNESCO Convention," said WADA President Sir Craig Reedie.
"Ninety-nine per cent of the world has pledged its support to clean sport and vowed to ensure that the UNESCO Convention is implemented and practiced effectively in their respective countries. We are very pleased that Sierra Leone has joined them.”
The Convention was adopted in October 2005 and is the practical instrument by which Governments formalize their commitment to the fight against doping.
