The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has ruled all sports playing under IOC sanctioned competition must be WADA compliant.

Members of the 17 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of Oceania are part of the 205 NOCs attending the XIX (19th) Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly which begins today.

Dr Robin Mitchell is one of five presidents of Continental Associations to deliver reports yesterday.

Other Oceania reps- Barbara Kendall of NZ will make presentation about the ANOC Athletes Commission, former IOC member Kevan Gosper of Australia on the Modernisation Follow -Up Commission and Dr Mitchell on the ANOC Medical Commission.

The election of the president and senior vice-president of ANOC will be a key highlight in the first of the two-day assembly.
