Canadian Swimmers Show Support For Clean Sport At World Championships

"Sport brings people from different countries and abilities together in a passionate and competitive environment. Above all, elite athletes began their pursuit of sport for fun. That spark should be what helps them achieve their best, and that spirit of sport brings all athletes together."

Grand'Maison will be in action in the following days of the World Championships.

On August 13 IPC President Sir Philip Craven and WADA Director General David Howman will attend a press conference where they will give their views on the importance of clean sport and a doping free culture.

"Say NO! to Doping is an effective campaign that allows athletes and organizations to demonstrate that they are behind clean sport. Hosting a dedicated Say NO! to Doping day here in Montreal provides the perfect opportunity for the sporting and anti-doping community to show its commitment to real sport that consists of fair play and respect," David Howman said.

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) will provide third-party anti-doping services for the World Championships, bringing more than 20 years of experience and the latest anti-doping techniques in urine and blood sample collection. Doping control officers from the Canadian Anti-Doping Program will collect urine and blood samples before and during the World Championships. In addition, CCES staff will be on site to provide outreach services to athletes and access to helpful anti-doping information.

"The CCES is pleased to participate in this effort by the IPC and WADA to promote clean sport," says Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES. "Athletes want clean sport. We are committed to helping them be as well informed as possible in their quest to compete clean," adds Melia.

Fans can pick up tickets for the IPC Swimming World Championships from just $11.50 CAD for children and $17.00 CAD for adults at: https://billets-tickets.montrealipc2013.com/

There will be free hand-held paper fans and temporary tattoos available for spectators on the day which will display the Say No! to Doping and IPC logos, as well as a Twitter and Facebook competition providing the opportunity to win signed caps worn by World and Paralympic Champions once the Championships have concluded.
