First Anti-doping Program in PNG held in Port Moresby

A weeklong anti-doping program held in Port Moresby was the first in the country, that saw more than 30 coaches and athletes participate in the workshop.

The Program facilitated by anti-doping organisation advocates, promote and coordinate anti-doping through education programs in the Pacific.

While many participants in the program know little about anti-doping, it is more than just an athlete being tested.

She says while the Pacific Region is slowly adapting to the anti-doping act, and the way the test are conducted, advocating the process of anti-doping and what is required during the act is important for both athletes and coaches.

She added that it is better for athlete’s t to know what types of drugs are acceptable and illegal to use and the process required for anti-doping tests.

Director of PNG High Performance, Aaron Alsop, said although it took a while to get the program to PNG, it has come at a time, when many athletes are competing overseas.
