Dushanbe, Tajikistan, January 11, 2019: An anti-doping seminar headlined "Sports Medicine and Protection of Clean Athletes” was organised by the National Olympic Committee of Tajikistan in Dushanbe from January 7-9.
The seminar, which was attended by coaches and trainers from sports schools in the country as well as Olympic sports bodies in Dushanbe, was held in collaboration with the Committee of Youth Affairs and Sports under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan.
Participants were instructed on a wide number of subjects, among them doping and its consequences and the regulatory doping documents which needed to be completed before international competitions.
Topics during the three-day seminar included ‘Doping, What?’, ‘Basic Principles of Anti-Doping Action’, ‘Creation and Functions of the World Anti-Doping Agency’, ‘International Anti-Doping Measures’, ‘Anti-Doping Measures at Government Level’, ‘Acknowledging the List of Drugs in Sport’ and ‘Doping results and its impact on Career and Personal life of the athlete’.
During the presentation it was noted that the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan has taken all measures to combat doping in sport. It was also underscored that in November 2011 Tajikistan adhered to the International Anti-Doping Convention. This convention was adopted in Paris in 2005 and is recognised by more than 170 countries through the UNESCO Convention on the Fight against Doping in Sport.
Last year, four Tajikistan athletes in judo and sambo were handed bans between two to four years for the use of banned drugs by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
The National Olympic Committee of Tajikistan plans to hold regular seminars on doping so as to educate students and young athletes. It is planned to hold more than 1200 such seminars.
