Founder of Enhanced Games Calls for Anti-Doping Policy Reform

Controversy has surrounded the swimming world in the lead-up to the Paris Olympics. On April 20, 2024, concerns were raised by Travis Tygart, the CEO of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), regarding the handling of positive drug tests by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and Chinese officials. 23 Chinese swimmers were allowed to compete in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, even though they had tested positive for doping several months earlier.

The Chinese Doping Agency claimed there was unintentional exposure to the doping substance through contamination, and the WADA concluded that they would be permitted to participate.

The WADA deemed the remarks outrageous, false, and defamatory while also defending its scientific investigation. Amidst the ongoing controversy, the CEO of Enhanced Games, who has previously come under fire for the sports event lacking drug testing for athletes, has shown a willingness to collaborate with sports federations to bring about a transformative change in the world of sports.

In 2020, the WADA received a tip from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency regarding allegations of doping cover-ups in China. However, according to the WADA, the USADA provided no evidence, and no follow-up was conducted.

In Tokyo, the Chinese swim team won six medals, three of them gold, proving their prowess in the pool.

Multiple PED scandals in the past have plagued the Olympics, prompting Dr. Aaron D’Souza to establish the “Enhanced Games” last year.

The Enhanced Games have been described by critics as an event that elevates the Olympics to new heights, permitting the utilization of performance-enhancing drugs.

D’Souza consistently highlights that his event is renowned for its unwavering commitment to fairness in sport, ensuring absolute transparency throughout. He believes that with numerous doctors overseeing the athletes, this sporting event will be one of the safest ever.

In a statement released Tuesday, D’Souza expressed frustration with the anti-doping regime, emphasizing its lack of effectiveness and controversial past. He says sports’ integrity has been compromised, and the trust of athletes worldwide has been eroded. The Enhanced Games, he states, offer a unique approach that seamlessly integrates and balances the presence of both natural and enhanced athletes.
