THE­World Anti-Dop­ing Agency (WADA) is to re­ceive $1-mil­lion from Qatar for a new fund to fi­nance anti-dop­ing re­search. The In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee (IOC) havw pledged to invest $10-mil­lion in the fund if it can be matched by gov­ern­ments around the world. The con­tri­bu­tion by Qatar, which is a stag­ing the 2022 World Cup and a num­ber of other in­ter­na­tional events, will “sig­nif­i­cantly help” WADA and the IOC in their ef­forts to fund in­no­va­tive dop­ing re­search, a WADA state­ment said.
