As the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games approaches (July 28 to August 8), the Commonwealth Games Association Mauritius (CGA), in partnership with the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports and Recreation, held an Anti Doping Educational Program on Saturday at the Phoenix gymnasium, with theme the fight against doping, for athletes who will be taking part at the Commonwealth Games 2022. Coaches also participated in the event.
Allan Cadressen, Officer of the Ministry and Head of the anti-doping unit, during his speech, gave a list of authorized and prohibited products. He also focused on the procedures to follow and respect for athletes on medication and for anti-doping control during competitions.
“We will be the country’s ambassadors at the Commonwealth Games. It is important that athletes are well informed about the products or medications they can take. This, in order not to find yourself in embarrassing situations during checks. This is also the purpose of this awareness workshop,” says Mr. Hedley Han, Secretary General of CGA Mauritius.
