Ko de Mooy RIP 20/04/2013

The Singapore Anti-Doping Testing team It is with great sadness that the World DanceSport Federation must inform you of the passing of the Anti-Doping Commission Chairman, Mr Ko de Mooy. Ko had started to serve WDSF in this capacity soon after the commission was formally instated and led the fight against doping in DanceSport until his death on 19 April.

The WDSF Presidium conveys its condolences to Ko's family and all of his many friends.

After learning of Ko's passing yesterday, Presidium Member Jim Fraser wrote the following to his fellow members.

This is terribly sad news.

Ko gave a terrific service to WDSF.

He approached me in Lausanne in 2001, when I was the first Anti-Doping Commission Chair, he agreed to my request that he use his considerable knowledge of Anti-Doping to serve as my technical adviser, and then he agreed to take the very heavy responsibility of acting as Chair a year later.

Even when he was very sick, in pain and thinking about his death, he still wanted to help WDSF and work for DanceSport.

He was energetic, ethical, clear-thinking, always knowledgeable, and always friendly and cheerful, a terrific colleague.

I will miss him very much.

Jim Fraser
