In the space of just a few years, the AFLD has changed completely. AFLD missions have expanded and its capacity for action has increased. With the constant support of the French State, AFLD has reached the unprecedented level of 12,000 samples to be taken in 2023 and is now one of Europe’s leading anti-doping organisations. Throughout last year, the Agency was fully involved in the preparations for the Paris 2024 Games. In particular, AFLD has been working alongside the sporting movement and the athletes themselves to support the Olympic and Paralympic delegations and enable them to set an example in their preparations and their quest for medals.

In 2024, for the first time, the committee responsible for organising the Games will rely on a service contract signed with the host country’s national anti-doping organisation. While the testing programme will be defined by the International Testing Agency (ITA), to which the International Olympic Committee has delegated its authority, and by the International Paralympic Committee, the AFLD will play a major operational role, alongside Paris 2024, in carrying out the tests that will be carried out as part of the Games. AFLD will also deploy its investigative capacity on the ground.

From now on, the Agency wants to build an Olympic legacy, so that the advances made in the context of the Paris 2024 Games benefit all athletes, whatever their level. An online education platform with a wealth of content tailored to the diversity of audiences, a territorial network of over 200 educators, numerous targeted controls and particularly effective judicial and administrative cooperation are just some of the actions that need to be continued so that our country can remain worthy of the great sporting nation that it is when it comes to anti-doping.
