It starts with a simple but powerful mission for clean sport: stand with athletes to champion their right to clean sport, inspire true and healthy sport, and promote the integrity of sport. Guided by this mission, we stand with athletes and for athletes, from the start of their careers to the day they retire. When they first enter sport, we are there to help them learn the lessons and values for success on and off the field. As they ascend to higher levels of sport, we are there with education and resources that help them navigate the anti-doping process. When their success makes them eligible for testing, we are there with a friendly face and consistent protocols to guide them through the process. When they a question about substances and methods, we have experts available a phone call away, and at the forefront of the effort to solve the most complex anti-doping questions. If they run into issues with the rules, we are there with a fair adjudication process that protects the rights of all athletes. And when the day comes for them to start a new journey, we are there to process their retirement and celebrate their commitment to clean sport. From the first whistle to the final buzzer, USADA is standing with athletes to champion their right to clean sport, inspiring true and healthy sport, and promoting the integrity of sport.
