ORGANIZATION AND DIRECTION OF THE ANTI-DOPING EDUCATION IN BULGARIA

V. ZАRКОVА, HR. IVАNCHЕVА, HR. PZHЕVА, S. ТОDОROV
In the fight against doping, the Antidoping Centre prepared educational-informational programs, aimed at informing adolescent athletes about the Prohibited List of drugs and methods, about the health deterioration by the use of drugs that are banned for athletes, as well as about the possible violation of doping rules resulting from use of prohibited substances. Young athletes are less informed and might easily be influenced by incompetent or unscrupulous environment that could lead them to the use of doping substances. Prior to antidoping education, the Antidoping Centre carried out quizzes among the young athletes in order to estimate the level of their knowledge on the harm by using banned substances, on athlete’s rights and obligations during doping testing. The aim of the anonymous inquiry was to find out some gaps in the knowledge of the participants and, on this basis, to determine the preparation of the materials to be included in the lectures.
