Clean sport initiatives in Park City and PyeongChang

Athletes attending the FIS Nordic Junior and U23 World Championships in Park City (USA) showed their interest in clean sport, with a packed house attending a presentation from U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) CEO Travis Tygart. More than 100 athletes, coaches and team personnel attended the hour-long session that was organised by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).

The programme stressed the principles of clean sport including both fair play and personal health. In addition to the presentation, athletes and coaches had the opportunity to ask questions about anti-doping and clean sport.

Meanwhile, as part of the recent FIS Cross-Country World Cup competitions in Korea that served as the official Olympic test events for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, the Korea Anti-Doping Agency promoted the values of clean sport and fair play.

Many of the world’s leading athletes, support staff and team officials participated and were able to improve their knowledge about anti-doping matters.
