In honor of the day of the athlete, on August 13, 2022, RUSADA held the III All-Russian Anti-Doping dictation. The participants of the dictation prepared according to video presentations published before, and tested their knowledge in the field of anti-doping using a test.
Olympic champions and medal winners of the Games, top athletes, as well as juniors and sports fans took part in our dictation.
In total, more than 2 thousand people took part in the dictation, almost 1800 of them passed it successfully, which means that they answered correctly 15 or more questions out of 20 proposed. For the successful completion of the test, the participants received a certificate from RUSADA.
Let's examine 3 issues that caused the most difficulties.
In the first place is the myth about RUSADA and WADA. Although the overwhelming majority answered correctly, 40% of respondents were mistaken in this question.
Is the statement true: "RUSADA is a branch of WADA in Russia"?
No, national anti-doping organizations are not affiliated with WADA.
Difficulties were caused by the question of persons who can be disqualified. We publish the correct answer:
Athletes, coaches, medics and other persons may be disqualified for violating anti-doping rules.
And closes the top three most difficult questions for the participants of the dictation:
Athlete during disqualification:
Cannot compete, train or work in any other capacity in sports institutions.
In order for you to test your knowledge once again, we attach a list of dictation questions with correct answers. By the way, we invite coaches and those who are responsible for anti-doping to use this test in their work with athletes.
RUSADA thanks everyone for participating! We are glad that we were able to tell you once again in an interesting and entertaining way about the anti-doping rules, which are the foundation of an honest and healthy sport.
