Stay tuned for ITA’s five webinars on anti-doping education starting on November 7

The month of November will be a busy one in terms of anti-doping education, with the staging of five webinars by the International Testing Agency (ITA). Every Tuesday, from November 7 to December 5, all participants will be able to be briefed and discuss on several topics related to anti-doping. For the weightlifting family, this initiative is part of the #ILiftClean campaign and follows joint activities by the IWF and the ITA at our major events of the year – in 2023, at the IWF World Youth Championships in March, at the IWF World Championships in September and at the next IWF World Junior Championships in November.

The five-webinar series starts on November 7 with the theme “Introduction to anti-doping – Overview of the system, rights and responsibilities, ADRVs”. On the following week, participants are invited to discuss “The Doping Control Process – Testing procedures (urine and blood) and ABP”, while the third webinar, on November 21 will deal with “Medications, Supplements, Prohibited List and TUEs (including the principle of Strict Liability)”. Seven days later, the fourth online rendezvous will present the “Principles and values of clean sport, including sanctions, consequences and speaking up”. The last webinar, on December 5, will focus on “Out-of-competition testing – Requirements of RTP/TP, whereabouts, and use of ADAMS”.

The five seminars will be held, every Tuesday, from 14h00 to 15h00 (CET time) and will be run in English (with simultaneous translation in Arabic, French, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Spanish). Those attending all five webinars will receive a final certificate.
