MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) announced on Tuesday that it launched an online portal operating in six languages for anonymous reporting on the abuse, encouragement and promotion of performance enhancing drugs.
According to the IAAF, the launched online portal, dubbed as ‘Report Doping,’ is "the latest weapon in its fight against cheating in sport" and all submitted information would be transmitted via secure networks and on completely anonymous basis.
"The message is clear. If you know something about doping in athletics, the IAAF wants to hear any information that you might have, such as: Evidence or suspicions of doping; Knowledge of coaches and support personnel encouraging doping; Trafficking of prohibited substances; New doping products," the IAAF said in its statement.
Commenting on the newly launched tool to fight doping abuse, IAAF President Sebastian Coe said: "We must stand tall for clean athletes."
"The future of our sport relies on the entire athletics community doing everything it can to oppose cheating," Coe said. "This easily accessible but secure Report Doping portal gives us all the means to play our part."
"Even the smallest piece of information could be vital in helping to protect the integrity of competition and a level playing field," the IAAF president added.
IAAF’s Report Doping online portal is operating in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic languages.
