Nipping the bud
DRUG?TESTING at the junior level may not be too far away.
That is according to assistant director of sport at the National Sports Council (NSC), Mona Alleyne, who believes that the time has come for drug testing to be implemented among young athletes.
Noting that these were changing times, she said she was expecting such an initiative to be implemented in the not so distant future.
“From the information which we have received from the National Committee For The Prevention Of Alcoholism And Drug Dependency (NCPADD) and from reading the newspaper and studies that have been done in recent times, there are a higher number of younger students involved in alcohol and drugs than there were ten or 15 years ago,” Alleyne told NATION SPORT.
