FIAS invites sambists to a new series of ITA webinars

The International SAMBO Federation invites sambists and other community members to participate in the new webinar series, which will be hosted by the International Testing Agency (ITA) in May and June.

In 2022, FIAS started collaborating with the International Testing Agency (ITA).  Since then, ITA has managed all testing for FIAS, including in-competition and out-of-competition doping controls and Anti-Doping education and, in 2023, gained access to the first International Federation's educational series. ITA's clean sports activities align strictly with the World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards.

All members of the SAMBO community need to comprehend the Anti-Doping system and the rules relevant to their groups. Athletes must adhere to the principle of strict liability, which holds them accountable for any substances found in their systems. However, Anti-Doping rules also apply to other team members. Among 11 Anti-Doping rules validation (ADRVs), all apply to athletes, but two apply to athlete support personnel, and five apply to athlete support personnel and other persons.

We strongly recommend that all SAMBO community members attend each webinar to evaluate their knowledge, stay updated on the latest changes, and receive a certificate upon completing all five sessions of the webinar series.
