Anti-Doping

​​​​The use of doping substances or doping methods to enhance sports performance is fundamentally wrong and is detrimental to the overall spirit of Deaf Sport. Drug misuse can harm athlete health and severely damage the ethics, integrity, and value of sport as a whole. The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) is a part of a collaborative worldwide movement for doping-free sports under the supervision of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). This movement aims to protect fair competition and athletes’ health through anti-doping programs.

The ICSD Anti-Doping Rules for the Summer and Winter Deaflympics and the World Deaf Youth Games are adopted and implemented in confidence with the ICSD's responsibilities under the WADA Code (Code) and are in continuing effort in the fight against doping.

All other sports events sanctioned by the ICSD, including World Deaf Championships, are subject to the ICSD Anti-Doping Rules.

ICSD Anti-Doping Rules 2021

To achieve integrity and fairness in deaf sport, a commitment of all ICSD members to a clean field of play is critical. It is the general expectation that all ICSD-affiliated deaf sports bodies undertake all required efforts to demonstrate compliance with the Code by implementing ICSD Anti-Doping Rules and policies. All ICSD athletes, entourage, and officials to the ICSD-sanctioned events must respect these rules as a condition of participation.

The ICSD strives to maintain the integrity of deaf sport by running an anti-doping program that focuses equally on education, prevention and testing, with consequent sanctioning of those who break the rules.

Getting educated on anti-doping is an essential duty for athletes and their entourage because ignorance can lead to substance misuse and Anti-Doping Rule Violations.
