Спортсмен, помни! Победа, одержанная с использованием допинга, - победа, одержанная путём обмана, а значит, награды и сопутствующие блага добыты мошенническим, преступным путём у законного победителя.                                                                                  Допинг – обман для спортсмена, уважайте своих соперников и прежде всего себя!                                                                                  Проявляй уважение к сопернику и веди себя достойно!                                                                                  Спортсмен, а ты уверен в препаратах и медикаментах, которые принимаешь? Береги своё здоровье!                                                                                  Помни! Положительной пробой ты испортишь имидж своей команды!                                                                                  От тебя зависит будущее нашего спорта!                                                                                  Увлекаясь каннабиноидами, ты становишься обманщиком и можешь навсегда распрощаться со спортом!                                                                                  Одна положительная проба на наркотические вещества – и твоя репутация как спортсмена рухнет!                                                                                  Победа любой ценой – неправильный девиз, не совершай ошибку!                                                                                  Незнание Всемирного антидопингового кодекса – не освобождает спортсмена и персонал спортсмена от ответственности!                                                                                  Ты принимаешь БАД на свой страх и риск!                                                                                  Только спортсмен несёт ответственность за всё, что попадает в его организм!                                                                                  Юный спортсмен! Хочешь стать настоящим чемпионом? Выбирай чистый и честный спорт!

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces that, in accordance with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL), Sir Craig Reedie, Chairman of WADA’s Executive Committee, has approved the reinstatement of the WADA accreditation of the Doping Control Laboratory of Madrid (Madrid Laboratory) in Madrid, Spain. This decision allows the Laboratory to resume all of its anti-doping activities, including all analyses of urine and blood samples, with immediate effect.
The Madrid Laboratory had its accreditation suspended on 6 June 2016 as a result of the WADA Foundation Board’s 19 March 2016 decision to declare the Spanish Anti-Doping Agency (AEPSAD) non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code. Pursuant to Article 4.4 of the ISL, in order for a laboratory to maintain its accreditation status, the National Anti-Doping Organization of the country of the laboratory must be Code compliant, as determined by WADA.
