Around 372 national team athletes, coaches and officials from sports federations and associations have been participating in a three-day Anti-Doping Educational Workshop, which wraps up today at the Institute of Technology of Cambodia.

The workshop, hosted by National Sport Training Center (NSTC) in cooperation with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Southeast Asia Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (WADA-SEA RADO), the Japanese Anti-Doping Agency and the UNESCO Fund for the Elimination of Doping in Sport, aims to help individuals more clearly understand about the prohibited substances in elite sports.

Cambodian soft tennis player Yi Sophany was sent home from the recent Asian Games in Incheon after failed a doping test. According to NSTC head Pun Sok, the athletes have been split into one group while the coaches and officials are in another.

Leading the workshop is SEA RADO instructor Gobinathan Nair, with JADA’s Yaya Yamamoto, the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia’s Medical Science Committee president Sdeung Chea, National Children Hospital deputy chief Hout Chantheany, and Cambodian Anti-Doping Agency president Ith Samheng.
