President of the International Olympic Association (IOC) Dr. Jacques Rogge was assured of the firm position of St. Kitts and Nevis against doping in sports when he visited the Federation on the weekend.
This assurance was given during a meeting at Government Headquarters when Prime Minister Honourable Dr. Denzil Douglas presented President Rogge with a copy of the Instrument of Ratification by the St. Kitts and Nevis Government to the UNESCO International Convention Against Doping in Sports. The original document was signed in February by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and forwarded to the relevant body.
The Prime Minister noted that the Government and people were proud to welcome the IOC President on his inaugural visit and explained that the visit should serve as inspiration to athletes contesting the March 21 to 24 CARIFTA Games slated for Bird Rock.
