ACBL Regs Do Not Recognize Sports Doping

The American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) has posted the followings:

Geir Helgemo, one of the top bridge players in the world, has been suspended by the World Bridge Federation because he tested positive for a substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. WADA is a foundation initiated by the International Olympic Committee to monitor drugs in sports.

The ACBL is not a participant in WADA and does not have a doping policy. Because Helgemo’s situation does not constitute an ethical violation under the ACBL Code of Disciplinary Regulations (CDR 2.2.3), he is welcome to play in any and all ACBL-sanctioned events for which he is eligible.
