Held from 14 – 20 August 2006, the IAAF Junior World Championships in Beijing (China) showcased the ideal platform to speak to a future generation of champions about clean sport. Hundreds of athletes visited the IAAF Outreach Program to learn more about anti-doping, play the anti-doping quiz, and meet three-time Olympic Champion Marie Jose Pérec (FRA).
Based on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Athlete Outreach Model and in full partnership with WADA, the IAAF Anti-Doping Outreach program was led by Mr. Chris Butler from the IAAF, and assisted by team members Wang Xinzhai from the Chinese Olympic Committee Anti-Doping Commission, and Stacy Spletzer, Manager of WADA’s Athlete and Outreach Programs.
The IAAF plans to continue their athlete outreach initiatives and will coordinate future programs at major track and field championships worldwide.
