Doping control officers for YOG

'Singapore is committed to keeping the Youth Olympic Games free from doping. As we prepare to host the inaugural Youth Olympic Games next year, we want to make a clear stand against doping,' said Mr Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr Masagos Zulkifli Bin Masagos Mohamad at the launch of the seminar on Saturday morning.

'Anti-doping efforts are integral to promoting fair play and the ideals of the Olympic Movement,' he said. 'Such efforts are relevant to our young people as we educate, engage and influence them to adopt and live by the Olympic Values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect.'

I find it amazing that they have to go to such extents to prevent doping in the Youth Olympic Games. Are any sports clean anymore?
