Anti-doping outreach programme presented at U23 Beach Volleyball World Championships

Players were given access to anti-doping information and the opportunity to talk to anti-doping representatives
 Lausanne, Switzerland, June 21, 2014 – The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) conducted an anti-doping outreach programme at the FIVB Beach Volleyball U23 World Championships in Myslowice, Poland, from June 10 to 15.

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.
