FACTS Name of Partner Organization: Slovenian anti‐doping organization (SLOADO) Date: 19.07.2011 Length of intervention: 1 hour Location: Ljubljana, hotel Merkator Number of participants: 42 Target group/ addressees: athletes who will compete at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Trambzon, 2011 Trainers/ staff/ Anti‐Doping Junior Ambassadors that were involved: Jani Dvoršak, Nina Makuc, Karmen Gec, Danej Navrboc,, Veronika Dvoršak, Tjaša Hojnik, Matej Drinovec, Luka Pirec, Sebastian Bauman, Tadej Jug, Tjaša Logar REPORT ABOUT THE IMPLEMENTATION What was the aim? Our main goal was to inform young people about the problem of doping in professional sport. What content was conveyed? We presented the case of Andreas‐Heidi Krieger and other doping cases (Pantani, Agassi, Raducan ...) in summer sports, followed by general information on doping (the presentation of WADA, SLOADO, “What is doping?”, TUE, athletes...). We also made a presentation of doping control process and we intriduce athletes to all steps of doping control. We showed them an equpment for collecting the samples and explained how it is used. In the second part, we used the concept of workshops, with which we wanted to make young athletes and coaches openly discuss about the use of drugs in sport. We divided people into 6 groups and
distributed paper sheets with different tasks all of them concerning on the topic of doping. Each group had about 10 minutes to talk about the task and to give clear answers and explanations. After the discussion each group presented their conclusions to everybody. Ambassadors were there to guide, support and maybe help to point them in the right direction to get the general view on the given issue. After each presentation we had time to answer the questions that might have popped up. Which methodologies were used? Presentation and workshops. What were the impressions of the staff/ trainers/ ADJA?(for eg: how did the addressees react to the given information, was it easy to convey the information, were there discussions…): In our opinion the lecture was very interesting. It has been noticed that athletes and coaches do not have a lot of knowledge about the problem of doping (except from the athletes and coaches of cycling), but we could see that they have shown interest and cooperation to find out new things. In particular, the interest and surprise of all present was shown. During the workshops everybody was talking and exchanging their views. Also coaches that participated were set in the role of athletes. What were the results? We believe that all participants will think abut dangers of doping in the future and consider the consequences in a different way than they did before our lecture. Did you reach the desired outcome? How? Why? We think that the responses of the participants were good, because they have learned a lot new things. We can say that our goal was more than successfully achieved. What were the challenges in implementing EADIn in your own structure? We didn‘t have any problems. What would you do differently next time? Nothing.
