WITH HALF OF ITS member countries finding difficulty in paying their subscription fees, the Caribbean Regional Anti-Doping Organization (RADO) is facing some tough challenges in continuing the fight against doping in sports. “RADO faces a critical juncture at this point in time due to financial challenges,” executive director Tessa Chaderton-Shaw told NATIONSPORT in an interview yesterday. “All countries which have signed on to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code have a financial obligation to pay WADA as part of a global initiative, but Caribbean member countries are also part of RADO. “Given the economic crisis before us, this presents a challenge for all countries in the Caribbean region.”
