We celebrate Earth day. We celebrate Dolphin day, Banana day and even High Five day. Don't you think that we should celebrate a day, dedicated to clean sport and clean athletes? Clean athletes deserve to be celebrated. They train hard every day so everyone should show them their respect. Every day we can read about bad things that are going on in the world. Every day we can read about athletes being caught because they use prohibited substances. It is time that we send a positive massage to the world. That true heroes are athletes who play true every day. Not Olympic champions whose medals are taken away because they doped. Of course, fight for clean sport needs doping controls, investigations and whistle-blowers. But we that we are only catching the bad guys. We have to do something for clean athletes as well. Play True Day is a day that celebrates clean sport. Originally initiated in South America, it spread around Europe last year and it has gone even wider this year. Each year more countries and organisations are joining the campaign This year’s Play True Day campaign showed that a lot could be done. In just a few days, a positive massage about clean sport and true athletes reached over one million people all over the world. And that is just on social media. With outreach programs and other prevention activities at sport competitions thousands of athletes and spectators got the massage, that playing true is the only way how they should play sport. We are not there yet. However, it’s a good start.
