They will be joined by Dr Margo Mountjoy, Chair of Association of Summer Olympic International Federations’ Medical and Science Consultative Group, IOC Medical Commission Games Group member and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Health Medicine and Research Committee member.
Topics of the presentation include an overview of the changes of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code, medications, supplements and the WADA Prohibited List, and further ways of learning and development. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

“I would like to send my heartfelt gratitude to all of the medical experts who presented in this very informative webinar series,” concludes IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa. “I am confident coaches, players and others who attended have gained valuable knowledge, which they might be able to apply to improve their skills on and off the court.”
