The main objective of this symposium was to give assistance to all National Federations and the delegates from Russian Weightlifting Federation to get them familiarized with practices to tackle doping and provide education with the aim of guaranteeing a fair sport.
A total of 11 National Federations, inclusive with those 9 that were banned by IWF because of their doping infringement in Olympic Games held in year 2008 and 2012. Countries which participated in Beijing 2008 and London 2012 were evicted because of the drug offences and are banned till October 2019.
Throughout the session, the participants were given top-notch information, which would aid and abet the culture of doping and bring about constructive anti-doping programs.
Lectures were delivered by the IWF, WADA, CCES, and by the hosts: The Russian Weightlifting Federation and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). Following issues were highlighted:
biomedical support for athletes.
electronic diary management for athletes and coaches.
education and training of sports personnel.
measures to prevent possible doping violations.
IWF Director General Attila Adamfi stated: “We are pleased that this state-of-the-art training discussions, we could unite all the significant sponsors, including WADA, Russian Olympic Committee and Sports Ministry, and relevant NADOs, the RUSADA and CCES. We thank our host, the Russian Weightlifting Federation for organising this event.
Its baffling to completely eliminate doping in games. The underlining factor is how athletes should be trained, recognized and made aware of the repercussions about doping. For a lengthy period of time, prevention will demonstrate to be an extra well-organized means to combat doping
IWF has engaged itself in organizing a lot of seminars/conferences on the matter to help athletes. A Clean Sport Commission’s report was submitted in December 2017, in which a number of endorsements were implemented, the latest of which are “Anti-Doping Policy”.
