Dr. Bartagi and Mr. Ndjana spoke in front of more than 80 participants – among them Athletes, Coaches and Representatives of Weightlifting Federations of the African Continent.

The presentations tackled the changes and challenges brought forward with the introduction of the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code and aimed to raise awareness of the Anti-Doping Rules that are most used in practice based on the experiences of the IWF.

At the end of the Seminar the participants could put their newly gained knowledge to a test by filling the IWF Anti-Doping Quiz in English and French.
