Facilitators from World Rugby & Anti Doping Malaysia
“The anti-doping workshop was very informative for myself and players. It is imperative that all players looking to push on to a professional career takes part in these workshops as it will make them more aware of the consequences of taking performance enhancement drugs. We appreciate the efforts World Rugby are making to ensure that these courses are being held for all that take part in our sport.”
Mr. Apollo Perelini (UAERF Head Coach)
“It was really a great pleasure to be able to spread more information regarding anti-doping especially to youth athletes have no awareness about anti-doping. This really is a great platform to spread anti-doping awareness among youth athletes, and we really hope to have more of this kind of seminars in the future.
The collaboration between World Rugby, Asia Rugby, Malaysia Rugby Union and Anti Doping Malaysia (ADAMAS) was a very wise and good decision, we look forward to more opportunities to collaborate in the near future so we can fight together to make rugby clean. #pureperformance #winclean #saynotodoping”
Ms Syuhada (Anti-Doping Malaysia)
“The information given was very good for the Malaysian players. Hopefully with the knowledge and information gained, they can share with their friends. It would be good if this seminar could be given to other state unions, clubs and even schools in Malaysia.
Thanks to World Rugby, Asia Rugby, MRU & ADAMAS for this opportunity!”
