Play clean and win a golden volleyball from @FIVBMedical

Five-time Olympic beach volleyball athlete Emanuel Rego is an advocate for FIVB's Play Clean Anti-Doping Education Programme
Lausanne, Switzerland, November 19, 2014 – Fans of @FIVBMedical on Twitter can win a special golden volleyball for learning about anti-doping during #WednesdayWisdom.

The International Volleyball Federation takes anti-doping seriously, and was pleased to announce recently that the success of FIVB’s Play Clean anti-doping programme has continued in 2014 after tests given to players in the lead up to and during the FIVB Volleyball Men’s and Women’s World Championships in Poland and Italy respectively returned  all negative results.

Some of the biggest advocates for anti-doping are FIVB athletes themselves, including five-time Olympic beach volleyball athlete Emanuel Rego, of Brazil.

“Beach volleyball and volleyball are very clean sports, and I’m very proud of that,” Rego said. “I’m a real example, (in the fight against doping). In 20 years of my career with a lot of success, a lot of medals, Olympic medals, World Championships, I’ve never been through doping.

“This is the example I want to show the world, the new generation of athletes. It’s easy to do that. You just make the choice.”

@FIVBMedical wants to know, “Who inspires you to Play Clean”?

Whether it’s a professional athlete, coach, parent, or your own motivation, the FIVB encourages everyone to grow the game in a healthy way.

The first 100 fans who “like” @FIVBMedical on Twitter and answer the question will win a bookmark featuring Emanuel Rego, to inspire you to play clean and live clean every day.
