Bahamas Sports Minister Meets With Anti-Doping Committee

NASSAU, Bahamas – Minister of Youth, Sports, and Culture, the Hon. Desmond Bannister met with the Anti-Doping Committee on Thursday, September 4, 2008 to discuss amendments to the Sports Act to comply with international regulations supervised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The regulations would hold athletes criminally responsible for abusing substances and would disqualify them from participating in international competitions and maintaining international titles and medals.

The Committee plans to employ a resident doctor to monitor the drug interaction habits of athletes and to advise athletes of endangering circumstances that can compromise the integrity of their Sports performance.
