Montreal, 27 February 2019 – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) can confirm that it has been in close communication with law enforcement authorities in relation to the raids and arrests that police carried out today in Austria and Germany.

The raids were part of a wider police operation targeting criminals from a number of European countries, and WADA’s Intelligence and Investigations Department has been providing information and other assistance to the authorities in the course of their operation.

This latest cooperation with Austrian law enforcement follows a WADA investigation into activities of the International Biathlon Union, which last year resulted in the initiation of a criminal investigation by police in Austria and Norway.

Given the operation is ongoing, WADA can make no further comment at this time.

Eagles fly high.

Team 'Eagles' of LVL 1 impressed all at Mind Sports South Africa's (MSSA) 37th Gauteng Provincial Championships at Curro Aurora which the League of Legends esports title was played.

Even though this is the first year in which LVL 1 is affiliated, 'Eagles' performed well by winning the females division and with all the team members earning themselves Provincial Colours.

Team 'Eagles' is the first all female team to earn Provincial Colours for the League of Legends esports title at a Gauteng Provincial Championships.

The stellar results achieved by the team, under the direction of Claire Holmes, has allowed the team to creep into pole-position and just edge out 'Valkyrie' of Valhalla

There is no doubt that 'Valkyrie' will take 'Eagles' supremacy lightly.

All-in-all, 2019 will no doubt be an exciting year.
