The Uganda Olympic Committee Medical commission would like to inform you that it is carrying out the Out-of-Competition Anti-doping tests.

The Doping Control Officers very soon will arrive at your competition venues without warning or prior notice. In other words they do not need formal invitation to the clubs or request for permission. They will just show up at the training venues, introduce themselves to the coach available and then go on with the sample collection.

This is to therefore request that you disseminate this information appropriately and quickly to avoid inconveniences.

Kindly note that failure to submit a sample or denial of access to the targeted athletes constitutes to an Anti-doping rule violation punishable by WADA with suspension of the coach involved. Please refer to the WADA website for more details.
