#ILiftClean campaign will be active in Durres

The IWF continues to strengthen its #ILiftClean campaign, this time by holding an anti-doping educational booth at the IWF World Youth Championships, taking place in Durres (ALB), from March 25-April 1, 2023. Participating delegations in the event are invited to visit the booth during the first days of the event so that they can be briefed on the important regulations related to the implementation of a clean and drug-free sport. In partnership with ITA (the International Testing Agency), this initiative aims at a better integration among the young athletes of the Anti-Doping Education and Learning (ADEL) Certificate, a project created by WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency.

In Albania, and besides the booth, the IWF will stage an Anti-Doping Education Seminar, scheduled on March 27, at 10am in the official hotel of the competition – Grand Blue Fafa Resort. It will be a privileged occasion to exchange and share good experiences on this topic, as well as to be informed on the latest recommendations and guidelines from ITA and WADA. And everyone taking part in the seminar will leave with a nice gift!

Given the age group of the participating athletes at these Championships – competitors are aged between 13-17 – this important exercise of awareness aims at disseminating educational tools among our youngest talents but to their entourage (coaches and officials) as well!
