Drug test for nationals?
THE PHILIPPINE Sports Commission may conduct random drug-testing among national athletes.
PSC Chair William Ramirez said the agency would come up with guidelines to ensure that no rights are violated.
“We have to be careful that due process is observed,” said Ramirez.
A sepak takraw athlete recently tested positive for prohibited drugs after the Philippine Navy conducted a random test. The athlete was discharged from service.
Ramirez, who refused to divulge the athlete’s identity, will meet with officials of the 53 national sports associations tomorrow at Century Park Hotel.
