LONDON (GBR): FIFA continues to disagree with the harsh ‘whereabout’ rules the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) wants to apply on football. FIFA and UEFA have both pressed for changes with the WADA, arguing that the rule is harsh and unfair and should apply only to teams and not individual players. FIFA has previously demanded that out-of-competition tests take place only at club training facilities, and that players should not be tested during holidays to respect their private lives but WADA has claimed that football should not receive any special treatment and that they must follow the WADA Code like every other sport.

The Youth Olympic Games, starting on August 14, have been a lifelong wish for Rogge to create a global, multi-sport event for young athletes. „It‘s a preparation for their later Olympic life, in a very modern and human way we are going to tell them things that are important that they have to acquire. I think that is the added value of the Youth Olympic Games.“ Rogge said in an interview with Associated press.
