The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is launching its 2021 series of athlete-led webinars for athletes. Athletes and interested parties, are invited to register for the first webinar – 2021 Covid-19 and Clean Sport Update – which will be held on 25 February from 13-14:00 EST (that’s 7am Friday 26 February NZ time) and will focus on the impact of Covid-19 on athletes and the anti-doping system.
During this webinar, the WADA Athlete Committee Chair, alongside athlete and expert panellists, will discuss the ongoing effect that the Covid-19 pandemic is having on anti-doping for athletes. This will include an open Q&A regarding its impacts on testing, the role of vaccines and the way forward.
We strongly encourage all National Federations (NFs) and rider Clubs and Associations to inform their Athletes of this webinar and recommend that NF staff dealing with anti-doping matters also attend for information.
Dates of future webinars will be communicated in due course and all relevant information will also be posted on FEI Clean Sport for Humans-E Learning.
