British Virgin Islands Olympic Committee holds anti-doping and sports nutrition workshop

The British Virgin Islands Olympic Committee (BVIOC), in collaboration with the Caribbean Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (RADO) and the BVI Health Services Authority’s Public Health Unit, will host a workshop centred around anti-doping awareness and sports nutrition for athletes on 3 December 2022.

With health and nutrition being key components of ensuring athletes can perform at an optimal level, these elements are also considered to be an essential part of the BVIOC’s education and athlete development outreach.

Chief Doping Control Officer, BVI National Anti-Doping Organisation , Dr Harlan Vanterpool, MD, will present on the current anti-doping rules and regulations including the requirements for, and execution of, in-competition and out-of-competition testing.

Ms Marsha Boyce, Communications Coordinator for the Caribbean RADO, will provide insight on how to use the Anti-Doping Education and Learning Platform, a centralised platform offering educational solutions for athletes and coaches. She will also demonstrate how to use the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) for processing and entering data on all anti-doping issues. ADAMS is used by athletes for submitting their whereabouts and can also be used to manage the application and recognition of Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

Registration for the workshop can be found here.
