Doping tests for PSL

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Olympic Committee (ZOC) is flexing its muscles for a battle against the use of illegal drugs in local sport that is set to see Premier Soccer League players having to undergo doping tests from the beginning of the 2007 season.
The move, mooted out by the country's Olympic mo

vement and backed by world soccer governing body FIFA and the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA), is
geared towards the eradication of the illegal intake of banned substances in the top flight league.
The implementation of an anti-doping policy in the South African Premier League had gone a long way in fighting drug abuse in sport in that country. Since such policies have become the trend in the top professional leagues around the world, there is no reason why Zimbabwe should continue to lag behind. – Sports reporter
