EDUCATION

HOW CAN WE BETTER FIGHT AGAINST DOPING?

IFBB believes that the long-term solution to preventing doping in sport is through effective prevention and clean sport values-based education programs. This way we can altogether create a strong anti-doping culture.
There are a few online education programs, created by WADA and made available by the IFBB, made for athletes, coaches, national federations, parents or any other person wishing to know more about the anti-doping world. You can find these programs below with a short introduction, and we invite you to use them:
