Zhejiang Daily:

Anti-doping is an important part of holding top-level international competitions. Could you please brief us on the anti-doping work of the Chengdu Universiade?

Zhou Jinqiang:

The Organising Committee of the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games has placed great emphasis on anti-doping work, made testing plans in accordance with technical standards and requirements of the FISU. With accreditation from the World Anti-Doping Agency, the testing will be conducted by a Beijing anti-doping laboratory . By now, the work plans of the control guidelines, publicity, and education, as well as sample transfers, have been formulated. The doping test, anti-doping education, and risk control of food-borne doping are all well underway. The FISU has expressed satisfaction and given a good appraisal of our country's capacity and experience of anti-doping work in comprehensive sports events. 

Here are some specific highlights.

First, regarding doping testing, the Chengdu Universiade will conduct doping tests throughout all sports categories. By now, we have completed three rounds of doping control station acceptance tests, which have all met the requirements. During the competition, we will dispatch 78 doping control inspectors to conduct the work. The Chengdu Universiade has introduced some trials on doping tests. It will conduct paperless tests through the China Doping Intelligent Management Platform following the frugality principle; it will, for the first time in the history of the Universiade, conduct dried blood spot tests through advanced scientific techniques and stringent procedure control measures to create a fair and clean competition environment for athletes.

Second, so as to promote anti-doping education, the Chengdu Universiade will establish anti-doping education stations at the Universiade Village to provide Q&A sessions, video studies, and cultural demonstrations to guide athletes, trainers, and service team members to proactively increase their anti-doping knowledge and awareness. At the same time, we will also create a clean, pure, and positive atmosphere during intense competitions through the stations and related education and publicity activities.

Third, concerning the prevention and control of foodborne doping risks, the organizing committee adheres to the principle of "prioritizing prevention, risk management and controlling processes." The committee will strictly implement food safety requirements for large-scale sports events, strengthen oversight over the entire food chain, strictly control the processes, and eliminate food safety and foodborne doping incidents. This approach will ensure the cleanliness and purity of the Universiade. Thank you.
