Biathletes can report wrongdoing, including concerns about doping, using the ‘Report Wrongdoing’ button that is prominently displayed on this website. Click on the button to find out more about our confidential process.
Alternatively, in 2017, WADA launched ‘Speak Up!’, a secure digital platform intended for Athletes and others to pass on information about alleged ADRVs and non-compliance by Anti-Doping Organizations under the Code, or any act or omission that could undermine the fight against doping in sport.
Operating from a secure platform via a website and mobile phone app, and only available to a few authorized employees of WADA Intelligence & Investigations, ‘Speak Up!’ has been remarkably successful in bringing wrongdoing to light, with around 150 tips being received each year. Out of that, hundreds of intelligence disclosures have been actioned by WADA I&I. These range from allegations against individual Athletes or support personnel, to complex cases involving systemic anti-doping mismanagement, non-compliance and/or corruption.
WADA’s success in attracting whistleblowers led to the creation in 2018 of the Confidential Information Unit (CIU), which has enhanced WADA I&I’s capabilities in two priority areas, namely the collection of anti-doping intelligence and the management of confidential sources.
The CIU is currently staffed by three dedicated, multi-lingual Confidential Information Managers (CIMs) – two based at WADA’s Montreal headquarters and one at the Agency’s European office in Lausanne – all with extensive experience and training in handling whistleblowers and intelligence collection.
