MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva, who has been elected head of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) Supervisory Board, plans to make the new national anti-doping system the most efficient in the world.
"Setting up a strong, independent and transparent anti-doping system in Russia will be my main task as the board’s head," Isinbayeva told TASS. "The number one task is to establish the strongest and most efficient anti-doping system in the world that would be respected and recognized by the global anti-doping and sports community," she added.
She confirmed her intentions to cooperate with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and other international organizations. Besides, she said that a competition had been announced for the position of the RUSADA director general.
"We have announced an open competition for the position of the RUSADA director general so I call upon all qualified specialists to enter it," the Olympic champion said. She added that further information would be available on the RUSADA website. Isinbayeva went on to say that the Supervisory Board would monitor RUSADA’s activities and nominate its candidates for executive positions in the agency, as well as scrutinize financial statements.
"But of course, the main task is to combat doping in Russia and detect all violations. It does not matter who violates the law, a great athlete or a beginner," she said. "It is a special responsibility. If I try to relate it with the world of sports and my achievements, then this would be the case when I can’t allow myself to lose."
"I have only got one try to prove my efficiency and clean our sports from dirt so that the current generation of athletes, as well as the coming generations, would never have to face the issues that I had to encounter in my sports career," Isinbayeva stressed.
