The sport of softball has had a clean doping record since its inception in the 1996 Olympic Games and has taken further action to continue its streak of dope-free play. More than 250 tests have been taken in all of the ISF’s member nations as softball strives to be at the forefront of anti-doping initiatives.
“Softball leads the way in the fight against doping and exemplifies the Olympic values that sport and the Olympic movement aim to promote. I want to reassure the IOC that we will never be complacent in promoting the importance of clean competition,” stated ISF President Don Porter in a recent press release. According to Porter, softball has never experienced a positive test at the Games. You can check out the ISF’s anti-doping page here!
