May 15 USA Judo endorses USADA Program

May 15, 2013, 4:55 p.m. (ET)



USA Judo endorses the program conducted by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).  USADA’s mission is to be the guardian of the values and life lessons learned through true sport. We hold the public trust to:

Preserve the Integrity of Competition — We preserve the value and integrity of athletic competition through just initiatives that prevent, deter and detect violations of true sport.

Inspire True Sport — We inspire present and future generations of U.S. athletes through initiatives that impart the core principles of true sport — fair play, respect for one’s competitor and respect for the fundamental fairness of competition.

Protect the Rights of U.S. Athletes — We protect the right of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes to compete healthy and clean — to achieve their own personal victories as a result of unwavering commitment and hard work — to be celebrated as true heroes.

USA Judo is responsible for providing USADA the names of the Top 5 athletes (based on current Senior National Rankings).  These athletes are responsible for following the program outlined by USADA.

Below are links that provide tutorials on what a newly selected athlete and a returning athlete can expect as being a part of the USADA program.
