14. May 2014

Dr Ralf Allikvee, Chairman of the Board of East-Tallinn Central Hospital, was elected the new chairman at the meeting of the Estonian Anti-Doping Agency council held on Tuesday.

Dr Ralf Allikvee, Chairman of the Board of East-Tallinn Central Hospital, was elected the new chairman at the meeting of the new council of the Estonian Anti-Doping Agency held yesterday. Dr Allikvee was the Chief of Staff at Tallinn Mustamäe Hospital before becoming a Board Member at East-Tallinn Central Hospital in 2001. He is now the Chairman of the Board.

Dr Allikvee has been interested in anti-doping activities for a long time. “It’s sad to see athletes breaking doping rules because they don’t know what they’re doing,” he said. “I've now been offered the chance to do something in this area and I decided to accept the challenge. I’m certain that there is enough competence on the council and the executive team to fight for the reputation of honest sports.”

The importance of anti-doping information and training was emphasised at the meeting. The agency has started guest lessons in sports and ordinary schools to speak about the dangers of doping and the values of honest sports. The next step is cooperation with sports associations.

The mission of the Estonian Anti-Doping Agency is to promote healthy and clean sports by carrying out efficient doping control, provide anti-doping education to various target groups and make a contribution to international anti-doping cooperation. The activities of the agency are planned and supervised by a four-member council consisting of Dr Ralf Allikvee, Ants Mailend, Kristjan Port and Tõnu Seil.
