TFAA to Host First Track & Field Athlete Meeting on Doping in the Sport
Top current and retired athletes and agents to discuss and identify strategies to promote a drug-free sport

ATLANTA – The Track & Field Athletes Association (TFAA) will host the first working group meeting on doping in the sport for professional track & field athletes on Saturday, January 23, 2016. At the teleconference via Skype, some of the world’s greatest athletes and top agents from around the world will share their experiences and ideas, and the working group will identify preliminary strategies for how athletes can better align and create a culture that promotes a drug-free sport. This will be the first time an independent group of track & field athletes will meet formally to address the issue of doping in the sport.

“TFAA strives to empower the athlete voice through collective action, and this meeting represents a milestone for the sport and athletes who are the sport, and our commitment to and the fight for a drug-free sport,” TFAA President Adam Nelson. “Our sport’s history has been that of individuals fighting for athlete rights. In order for us to better build upon their efforts, especially at the international level, we must work together as athletes and with the sport’s various stakeholders.”

The first TFAA Working Group will later be joined by additional working groups focusing on athlete’s most pressing issues as well as working closer with national and international governing bodies as partners in the sport.
