I’m going to be talking about the United states anti doping association.
Honestly i’m not sure if it’s an advocacy but it is an organization that was started to protect the integrity of sports. So it’s sort of an advocacy group I guess.
The USADA was founded in 1999 by the USOC.
Its described as being a non-profit and non-governmental organization. The inspiration behind finding this organization was to retain the integrity of sports through drug testings and managing the results management process
An example of an athlete sort of being affected by the USADA is lance armstrong.
In 2012 Armstrong was accused by doping and after a lot of investigation by the USADA he was found guilty of several cases of doping. He was the stripped of all his titles as punishment.
The USADA needs chemist to solidify their testing methods to make sure they have accurate results and an efficient way of testing.
So to conclude the USADA is I think an important and necessary organization because it makes things fair in the world of sports and what not.
