Actor Suniel Shetty appointed as the brand ambassador for National Anti-Doping Agency

Actor Suniel Shetty appointed as the brand ambassador for National Anti-Doping Agency

Actor Suniel Shetty has been appointed as the brand ambassador of National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) on 10th December 2019. The National Anti-Doping body is hoping that his celebrity status will help its efforts to clean up sports in the country from the menace.

Key Points:

  • More than 150 athletes have failed the dope tests this year. Bodybuilders actually make up more than one-third of these offenders. 
  • Another issue that the country faces is that the dope samples collected by the National Anti-Doping Agency from the athletes would have to be tested outside India.

About NADA:

National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) was set up as a registered society under the Societies Registration Act of 1890 on November 24, 2005, with a mandate for Dope free sports in India. The primary objectives are to implement anti-doping rules as per WADA code, regulate dope control programme, to promote education and research and creating awareness about doping and its ill effects.
