Promoting a culture of doping free sport amongst youth through: facebook campaign: “keep tennis drug free”
Professional athletes are the ultimate inspiration for youngsters seeking to develop their own athletic skills, either professionally or for their personal development. The use of doping in professional sport is known to have a very bad influence on today’s youth. In order to promote clean sport Gaia is coordinating an anti doping campaign in the sport of tennis.
This campaign is being conducted through the running of a dedicated facebook page named “keep tennis drug free”. It aims to keep the public informed about all developments of the anti doping programmes being applied to tennis, including
i. new regulations
ii. cases of doping, with judgements and penalties handed down,
iii. weaknesses existing in the said programmes that show the shortcomings of the tennis organisations and possible failure to seriously implement the international anti doping policies.
