Win Clean prepares athletes for Rugby League World Cup 2013

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is supporting the organisers of the Rugby League World Cup 2013 in the delivery of pre-event anti-doping education through the Win Clean campaign.

As part of UKAD’s contracted anti-doping services, all competing teams will be offered Win Clean workshops and resources in the lead up to the tournament, hosted across England and Wales between 26 October and 30 November.

To help promote clean competition, UKAD National Trainers are delivering specifically-tailored Win Clean education sessions to players, team managers and medics from every competing country in the run up to the start of competition.

Each player will take away an official event anti-doping booklet from their workshop, detailing all the procedures and resources available to support them while in the UK. Medical personnel and team managers will also receive tailored sessions to ensure they fully understand the requirements expected in their roles during the tournament.

UKAD Head of Education and Athlete Support Amanda Batt said: “As the world’s top rugby league nations arrive in the UK for the 2013 World Cup, it is vital that everyone involved, from players to coaches, understands their anti-doping rights and responsibilities.

“The recognition from the Rugby League World Cup of the importance of clean sport has allowed us to provide a tailored anti-doping programme. This sends out a clear message that we are committed to supporting the integrity of major events hosted in the UK.”

The first education sessions took place on Wednesday 16 October, with the home nation teams all scheduled to have received event-specific Win Clean education by 20 October. The remaining sessions will be complete in time for the first game on Friday 26 October.
