Our Ambassadors

For you and with you #forpureperformance - that's why we founded the initiative in 2014. First supporters of the initiative are the president of the German Fencing Federation and former chairwoman of the IOC Athletes' Commission Claudia Bokel, the former speed skater Anni Friesinger-Postma, the former pole vaulter Silke Spiegelburg, the former cross-country skier Tobias Angerer, the former boxing world champion Wladimir Klitschko, the former para sprinter Heinrich Popow and the former beach volleyball player Jonas Reckermann. Read the athletes' statements on this page.

Many other athletes have committed themselves to clean sport in recent years and are ambassadors of the initiative for pure performance. Find out more about them here [ACTIVITIES].

You can find out how to submit your own statement here [JOIN].

Tobias Angerer

Multiple Olympic and World Championship medalists in cross-country skiing
Supporter of the NADA initiative

“For me, doping was never an issue, because I love my sport too much. Although the tests meant a certain effort for us as competitive athletes, they are nevertheless important and necessary. With my commitment for the NADA campaign, I want to help promoting clean sports.”

Claudia Bokel

Former Chairwoman of the IOC Athletes' commission, President of the German Fencing Federation, epée fencing Olympic silver medalist
Supporter of the NADA initiative

"For me, fairness in sport is the top priority. I want clean sport and equal opportunities. This is what NADA stands up for, and that’s why I support NADA’s initiative."

Anni Friesinger-Postma

Multiple Olympic medalists, World and European champion in speed skating
Supporter of the NADA initiative

"Ethically, Doping is a misconception and only clean athletes can become true sport heroes. Health is our greatest asset and doping harms body and mind. For me, it is very important to support NADA, because there is nothing like clean sport and fraudsters are no heroes. I think, NADA is important, because too many athletes do not stick to fair play, and NADA tries to keep the sport cleaner. Doping is damaging the image of sport, so I participate in the NADA campaign, ‘GIVE EVERYTHING, TAKE NOTHING’.

Wladimir Klitschko

IBF, WBO, WBA and IBO heavyweight boxing world champion
Supporter of the NADA initiative

„I'm committed to clean sport. Doping is never an option. That is why I support the initiative of NADA ‚GIVE EVERYTHING, TAKE NOTHING‘ as an ambassador.”

Heinrich Popow

Multiple Paralympics winner, World and European sprint champion
Supporter of the NADA initiative

„I support NADA, because they help us as athletes to keep the sport clean and thus giving the values in sports a future.“

Jonas Reckermann

Beach volleyball Olympic champion
Supporter of the NADA initiative

„The idea of fairness, exemplary function and health are extremely important for me - doping can and should never be an option! That is why, as an ambassador, I support the initiative of NADA 'Give everything, take nothing'!

Hans Sarpei

Former soccer player for VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04, German Cup winner 2011 with Schalke 04

Silke Spiegelburg
