CCES to Help Prepare Athletes for Doping Control at the Sherbrooke 2013 Summer Canada Games

(Ottawa, Ontario – June 21, 2013) – In anticipation of the Sherbrooke 2013 Summer Canada Games, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has developed resources for all competing athletes who will be subject to doping control. To help prepare athletes for sample collection and inform them of their rights and responsibilities, the CCES has developed some helpful tools:

  • True Sport Clean 101 e-learning course

The CCES is offering a comprehensive anti-doping e-learning course called True Sport Clean 101. Athletes who have not already received their login information should talk to their coach or team manager.

  • At the Games athlete blog

The CCES has also launched a new blog named “At the Games” that highlights key anti-doping information in the lead-up to the Summer Games. Athletes should subscribe to the blog to receive all the latest blog posts by email as soon as they are released.

During the Summer Games, the CCES will deliver anti-doping services that will focus on prevention, deterrence and detection. More information and resources concerning doping control, such as a sample collection video, the Prohibited List and the dangers of supplements, can be found at the Athlete Zone.

The CCES would like to congratulate all athletes heading to the Summer Games on their hard work and dedication to clean sport. Good luck and have fun!
