Egypt’s National Anti-Doping Organization (EGY-NADO) has upped its efforts to protect and maintain integrity in Egyptian sports by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sportradar Integrity Services.
The new MoU will facilitate the co-operation between the duo on matters of integrity, allowing for investigations to be carried out into potential infractions of the country’s Anti-Doping Code and other sports integrity matters.
Speaking about the agreement, Dr. Osama Ghoniem, CEO of EGY-NADO, said: “The importance of information gathered through intelligence within Anti-Doping investigations cannot be understated.
“Entering this cooperation, our Anti-Doping programmes are further strengthened by having access to the information, analysis and insights which Sportradar can provide us, and we foresee a great opportunity to work together and implement joint projects to help safeguard Egyptian sport in the years to come.”
In addition to the ability to carry out investigations, the MoU will allow Sportradar and EGY-NADO to share information and expertise, while also offering the opportunity for collaboration on joint projects to strengthen the fight against doping and sporting corruption.
Dr. Anja Martin, Director Anti-Doping Services of Sportradar, added: “We look forward to working alongside EGY-NADO in the coming years and playing our part in helping to uphold the high integrity standards of Egyptian sport.
“We anticipate many mutual benefits arising from this cooperation with one of the leading Anti-Doping organisations in Africa, and we will be ready from day one to offer any assistance we can into investigations via our intelligence experts specializing in the Anti-Doping field.”
