Successful Asian DCO course held in Iran

The Iranian National Anti-Doping Agency, in cooperation with WADA, hosted a successful DCO course and anti-doping symposium in Tehran October 7-9. One hundred seventy five DCOs from 20 countries participated in the event and were trained in doping control procedures. The symposium was held under the patronage of Mohsen Mehralizadeh, vice president of Iran and a member of WADA’s Foundation Board.

“This course and symposium were steps in the right direction in Asia for the fight against doping in sport,” said David Howman, WADA’s Director General, who attended the event.” We commend Iran and particularly, our Board member Mr. Mehralizadeh, for taking the initiative to host such a successful event that benefited the entire region.”
