Clean Game Campaign
BBNZ is committed to educating its athletes, participants and officials about the positive effects of being drug-free in sport and in life – and is not prepared to tolerate the taking of prohibited drugs. We are continuing to work with Drug Free Sport to enhance our education for all members of the basketball community and remind them that BBNZ will continue to back this up with a zero tolerance approach to infringements.

FIBA filmed a number of video clips at the 2010 World Championships as part of the fight against prohibited substances in basketball. The clips include high profile players talk about their views on a Clean Game and give advice on how to stay away from actions that could result in positive drug tests.
156 doping tests were carried out during the 2010 World Championships in Turkey, all of which returned negative results. Keep it this way, keep it healthy and fair for a Clean Game.
“Basketball is my life, if I find that someone I have been competing against has an unfair advantage, I am going to be really upset about it. I think everyone needs to take that stance.” Lauren Jackson, AUS
“You have to make sure that it is a legitimate product. Sometimes a company might push in something else under the label that actually is an illegal substance. Make sure the team doctor knows. You have to be 100% sure before you take something, because if you get caught, you’ll be the one who gets suspended and not the company that sold you the drug or the guy who gave you the substance.” Sasha Kaun, RUS
