Anti-doping outreach programme presented at U23 Beach Volleyball World Championships
The outreach programme was carried out on June 12 and 13 in conjunction with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the Polish Commission against Doping in Sport.
The first day of the programme took place at the players’ hotel, while the second day was at the tournament site in Myslowice.
A short video of how the programme was presented can be seen here.
The programme was aimed at beach volleyball players, members of their medical and technical staff, team managers and coaches.
Participants were able to use the WADA e-learning tool and consult with medical delegate Dr. Hossam Baghat and representatives from the Polish National Anti-Doping Agency.
The project provides an opportunity for medical delegates to meet players and their entourages face-to-face.
The pilot programme was launched at the FIVB Boys' Under 19 World Championship in Mexico in 2013.
