Top women volleyballers commit to drug-free sport


Players from Thailand take part in an anti-doping workshop in Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan, May 19, 2016 -The FIVB and the Japanese Volleyball Association has conducted another successful anti-doping outreach programme, this time for officials and players at the Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournament in Tokyo.

The programme is designed to increase the participants’ knowledge of anti-doping matters, and through a quiz, give the FIVB and partners a better view of the level of understanding among players and officials of current doping laws.

The programme was organised by the FIVB, Japan Volleyball Association (JVA), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), and the Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA).

A total of 84 athletes and officials took part in the quiz, and there was a short interactive session to provide valuable information on anti-doping as well as a presentation of useful tools to enhance each participant’s knowledge of anti-doping.

Participants were also able to put their questions to the FIVB medical delegate and representatives of the Japan Anti-Doping Agency.

And similar to last year’s outreach programme during the World Cup in Japan, players signed their names to a commitment to clean volleyball.
