WSLR Breaks News of WADA Whereabouts Challenge

 World Sports Law Report’s January edition broke news of a legal challenge to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s whereabouts requirements under the World Anti-Doping Code, which requires athletes to state where they will be for one hour each day for out-of-competition testing. The legal challenge, which was launched by Belgian players’ association ACV-Sporta, is being supported by the international association for football players’ associations, FIFPro.

The story received coverage in the Guardian on 22 January and on the BBC on 22 January, however subscribers to World Sports Law Report's e-law alerts, which are free of charge, were informed on 20 January, despite later claims that the story was broken elsewhere (I suppose I should be used to this after 10 years of trade journalism…). The first person two correctly guess which two news organisations also receive the e-law alerts will receive £100 off the cost of a World Sports Law Report subscription!
