Without opportunities to compete on the mat, hundreds of top wrestlers and coaches have made the best of their recent downtime and earned certificates delivered through the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) educational tools, ALPHA and CoachTrue.
These educational programs are made available to all athletes and coaches by WADA via the e-learning platform ADeL. The programs intend to provide education and information about the dangers of doping, and the importance of anti-doping controls. They also provide solutions for clean progression in sport rather than simply focusing on what is not allowed.
In the framework of its anti-doping education program, United World Wrestling selected 500 wrestlers from 50 countries and around 150 coaches from 41 countries via their national federations and requested them to complete these programs. Participants who complete all sections of the course, as well as the post-course and the final exam, earned a certificate from WADA.
