Education is one of the key prevention strategies highlighted in the World Anti-Doping Code and one that we can continue strengthening and promoting even during a period when our team is not able to engage in face-to-face learning activities. Therefore, the ITA created an online learning experience in order to continue its education efforts during the COVID-19 crisis. Our webinar series aims at giving athletes and their support personnel an overview of all aspects of the doping control system. Due to popular demand, the International Testing Agency has decided to make its entire webinar series publicly available to the broader sports community. Please find the topics and dates of the whole series further below.

The third session of our webinar series will focus on values, rights and responsibilities. Kady Kanouté Tounkara OLY, Chair of the WADA Education Committee and member of the ITA Education Expert Group, will speak of personal and sport values, and how these affect decision-making. Olya Abasolo OLY, will cover the Principle of Strict Liability as well as athletes’ rights and responsibilities. All athletes’ voices and experiences need to be heard in order to generate meaningful conversations about clean sport and the anti-doping system. So this edition is unique – Sharad Kumar and Søren Johansson, two athletes who have been sanctioned for anti-doping rule violations, will also speak about their personal experiences.
