There is a very good reason The Bahamas has been able to lay claim to the title of the most successful sports country per capita in the world and maintain that lofty status.
The root link to the sports power image has been the focus of the Bahamian federations in the mix. They ensured through the years that the “Clean Sports” approach was adopted and subscribed to with continuity.
The body responsible for track and field in the country, the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA) has been the lead organization in achievements. The BAAA is still the strongest sports presence in the country and according to its president, “most willing” and prepared to work closely with the Commission in the interest of the national “Clean Sports” image.
Similarly, the Commission expects the same kind of cooperation from all of the other federations.
Thousands of athletes from those various bodies represent The Bahamas in regional and international competition on an ongoing basis and they are all subject to testing. It is a wide test pool indeed that the BADC has jurisdiction over. To this end the Commission has accepted the challenge of monitoring the sports terrain in The Bahamas and being the vanguard for fair and balanced competition in every regard.
The BADC enjoys an excellent working relationship with the Bahamas Olympic Committee, formerly the National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO). The aforementioned sports bodies with few exceptions are official members of the BOC.
