NEW YORK, February 7. ACCORDING to a report by Craig Lord of SwimNews, the United Nations, during a convention, approved a list of banned substances submitted by the World Anti-Doping Agency. The result of the approval is that there is now, through documentation, a collaborative effort against banned substances by various governments.
With different nations on board together in the fight against banned substances, it should be possible for officials to track doping and the sale of banned substances. Forty-one nations were involved in the anti-doping portion of the convention and those countries have promised to take a stand against banned substances through governmental means. The WADA list has been in place since last month.
