World Rowing offers FREE Anti-Doping webinars
This series of 5 weekly webinars, covering the compulsory topics as set out in the WADA code, starts on Wednesday, 5 April 2023
The use of doping substances or doping methods to enhance performance is fundamentally wrong and is detrimental to the overall spirit of sport. Drug misuse can be harmful to an athlete’s health and to other athletes competing in the sport. It severely damages the integrity, image and value of sport, whether or not the motivation to use drugs is to improve performance.
To achieve integrity and fairness in sport, a commitment to a clean field of play is critical. World Rowing seeks to maintain the integrity of sport in by running a comprehensive anti-doping programme that focuses equally on education/prevention and on testing, with consequent sanctioning of those who break the rules.

The webinar series is prepared and delivered by ITA (International Testing Agency) and it is one of the educational activities of the World Rowing Education Plan developed in cooperation with ITA.
