ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - After an intense two-day training of some twelve persons, six are now registered as in and out of competition testers of athletes in all sports competitions at the regional and international level.

The training hosted by the BVI Olympics Committee, commenced last Wednesday and was completed on Thursday, May 30, 2019. It was facilitated by the Caribbean Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (RADO) which is on its final day of a one-week stint in the territory for a series of programmes.

Kristie Dickenson, the Doping Control Officer who was the facilitator for the workshop and training, said she is confident in the competence of the newly trained officers.

“These officers will be able to conduct education for athletes in terms of doping control and they would be able to collect samples from the athletes, process the samples and ship them off to accredited laboratories,” she told Virgin Islands News Online (VINO).

In addition to the training of the officers, a number of athletes, trainers, managers and others interested in the programme also benefitted from an eye-opening seminar on doping in the sports industry, on Friday, May 31, 2019, at Maria’s by the Sea.

In addition to those events, the Virgin Islands (VI) also played host to the Caribbean RADO annual General Meeting which brings together members from across the Caribbean.

The official meet is expected to conclude today, June 2, 2019.
