The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has revealed a new doping violation reporting app called “Speak Up!” available for the iPhone and Android phones. The digital platform is for athletes to alert WADA to potential anti-doping rule violators.
The app user can report anyone, either as an “informant” or “whistleblower,” who “detects, identifies, witnesses, knows of, or has reasonable grounds to suspect that cheating in sport has occurred,” according to Swim Swam.
WADA’s Director of Intelligence and Investigations, Günter Younger said “Speak Up! answers the call made by athletes and others for a secure, confidential way to report activity that goes against clean sport.”

“WADA is pleased to launch Speak Up!, which we believe will encourage more informants and whistleblowers to come forward and report suspected doping violations,” said Olivier Niggli, Director General of WADA.
