Each sport discipline can be considered serious if it deals with the World Anti-Doping Agency Code. ()
Any self-respecting sport organization must adopt World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code. It applies to UFC, boxing organizations, american football, baseball – any professional sport.
"Today WAF accepted WADA Code and it’s fighting for the right to get armwrestling into SportAccord. PAL is not going to SportAccord, but the organization has been working in the US market, so it just can’t ignore the WADA Code, – explains the Head of PAL Igor Mazurenko. – Otherwise, any organization will have no deal with us, especially the sponsors. Therefore, we warn everyone in advance: those athletes, who will participate in such competitions as the Professional World Cup, will take the doping tests with the system that runs in WAF. Winners of the categories from the first to the third place will draw lots.
