Tackling Doping In Sport: IOC, UK Sport & Dwain Chambers

Howard Stupp, the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Director of Legal Affairs and Andy Parkinson, UK Sport's Acting Director of Drug Free Sport will be available at Tackling Doping in Sport to discuss the IOC's recent decision to re-test samples taken at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games for CERA - a form of EPO used for blood doping.

Jonathan Crystal, Barrister for Dwain Chambers, will provide a case study. Sprinter Dwain Chambers will also attend.

Jonathan Harris, Anti-Doping Manager for the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, will also provide an overview of plans to tackle doping at London 2012.

The Briefing, to be held at the London Offices of Charles Russell LLP on 22 October, will also discuss how the new version of the World Anti-Doping Code, which comes into effect from 1 January, will allow sporting organisations to implement a four-year maximum ban for intentional doping, rather than the current two-year maximum.

Delegates include: FIFA, the England & Wales Cricket Board, the British Equestrian Federation, the Amateur Swimming Association, UK Athletics, the Royal Yachting Association and, of course, numerous law firms. For more information, including a full programme, click here.
