“His role in completing the WADA Compliance Review in 2018 resulted in World ParaVolley meeting all requirements for Compliance on time. He has led the commission ensuring that World ParaVolley is testing athletes to protect clean sport, and ensuring that we play our part in the Anti-Doping Education of our international athletes. Despite having a busy medical practice, he has found the time to quietly work behind the scenes, supporting our Federation and our athletes, and always with a smile and good humour. By 2020 he built the human resource numbers within the Anti-Doping Commission to establish a full commission of active members. World ParaVolley has indeed been fortunate to have Jamie.”
