Over the three days 900 representatives from international federations, national and regional anti-doping organisations, major events organisers, governments, laboratories, athletes and the media had the chance to exchange and share experiences.
Rebuilding anti-doping in Russia, enhancing the quality of the anti-doping programmes through Code Compliance Monitoring, how digital technology is extending the reach of clean sport – for example through the new WADA’s Online Education Platform ADeL and ADAMS Next Generation – were among the main topics discussed in plenary sessions.
“Content and network building at the Symposium gives us the opportunity to keep up-to date on the latest information, developments and trends to the benefit of the protection of clean table tennis players” concluded Prof. Miran Kondric.
Also, worth to mention was a workshop on how Anti-Doping Organizations shall make it right on Data Protection.
Zoran Primorac joined a special session under the auspices of the WADA Athletes Commission, where the engagement of athletes in the Anti-Doping Process was discussed, in particular, in the framework of the future Anti-Doping Charter of Athlete Rights.
