In 1982, BNOC became Britoil and was privatized and purchased in 1988 by BP.
Thus, Statoil was created in 1972, three years before BNOC and it survived long after BNOC was privatized in 1982.
To address issues of anti-doping, Serufho said the leadership of BNOC
, Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC), Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (RADO), Botswana Athletics Association (BAA) and Botswana National Anti-Doping Organisation (BONADO) addressed the Commonwealth bound team on anti-doping matters.
I AM trying to contact Eddie Pearce, who was a chef in BNOC
in St Vincent Street, Glasgow, in the mid-Seventies.
Answering a question from the media, during BNOC press brief, the organisation Chief Executive Officer, Tuelo Serufho said the athlete was provisional suspended from athletics because her sample that was taken, was found to contain banned substances.
He however said as the BNOC, they await the outcome of the investigations, adding that as an organisation they were worried at the rate at which their athletes return AAF.
Furthermore, he said what was disappointing was, that the BNOC National Anti-Doping Office (NADO) visit the camps of national teams and educate them about anti-doping, and even test some of them.
IOC, he said does not sponsor athletes with the current or previous doping case, adding that unfortunately BNOC would not be allowed to replace her slot but to redistribute her money to current scholarship holders .
As BNOC, he said they wanted to establish a baseline where their athletes stood in medical condition, so that those with injuries would be attended to in order to avoid exacerbating any injury.
He explained that BNOC had previously made a commitment, which they would stick to.
When BNOC developed its strategy, which runs up 2020, he said they had made a committment that they would ensure that the team brings home eight medals from the Commonwealth Games.
For her part, Oreeditse Marakakgoro, representing the participants, said they were grateful to BNOC
for giving them an opportunity to learn about the Olympic values.
