London 2012 Paralympic Sailing Competition
06 Sep 12
No racing was possible on the final day of sailing at the London 2012 Paralympic Sailing Competition meaning that the results from the day prior confirmed the medals.
To promote and protect the integrity of sport and the health of athletes, the IPC, together with International Federations and the National Paralympic Committees established the IPC Anti-Doping Code.
Anti-Doping rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. All participants (athletes and athlete support personnel) accept these rules as a condition of participation and are presumed to have agreed to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code.
The IPC fully supports the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) view that the long-term solution to preventing doping is through effective values-based education programmes that can foster anti-doping behaviors and create a strong anti-doping culture.
