Licences for gymnasts – OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION from FIG
Doha (QAT), repoted from the FIG Office, May 26, 2011: The FIG licence for elite gymnasts came into force for the first time in October 2009, at the artistic world championships in London. Some 10,000 passports have since been distributed and the concept has proven largely effective.
Valid for a two-year period, the time has come for renewal. All gymnasts participating in official FIG competitions or those organised by its unions will need to comply. Senior and junior Age Group competitors are also subject, and federations have been invited to update their respective files in the FIG database.
By signing the licence, a gymnast attests to the accuracy of his or her identity and age, and consents to having a profile created within the Anti-doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS), as required by the WADA Code (World Anti-doping Agency).
Only FIG affiliated federations having fulfilled their obligations may request or renew licences for their gymnasts.
