In a spirit of solidarity among the anti-doping community, IWBF is proud to be celebrating Play True Day, and emphasising its commitment to a clean sport free of doping.
What is Play True Day?
Play True Day – a grassroots movement endorsed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) – is dedicated to clean sport and is intended to raise awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others about the global fight against doping.
‘Play True Day’ is dedicated to clean sport and is intended to raise awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others about the global fight against doping. The inspiration for this initiative stems from a WADA-hosted Education Conference in 2013, which was attended by 17 South American countries that were the driving force behind 10 April being declared ‘Play True Day’. While it started as a small South American initiative, over the years, this grassroots movement has gained momentum with numerous organizations and countries from across the globe taking part.
Competing on an even playing field, where hard work, training and talent are the fundamental difference between winning and losing, holds a central place within the sporting ethos. The practice of trying to gain an unfair advantage through dishonest means is as old as sport itself. It remains a never-ending battle, but one that IWBF takes extremely seriously.
