Jakarta, August 12th,  2022

The date of August 12th, 2022 was a special day for PBSI and IADO. IADO intentionally organized the first education to PBSI only instead of all of other national sport federations. The first reason was that the country owes lots to PBSI due to very often achievements at all of international sports events. In addition, when the Indonesian Team got the Thomas Cup in Denmark on October 17th, 2021, the victory ceremony was not accompanied by the flag raising as the impact of the sanction from WADA to Indonesia.

Furthermore, it was done to PBSI, because badminton is the main sport program on the Grand Design of National Sports (DBON).   Participants of the education were junior players who would be prepared for lots of various international events. IADO represented by the Chairman of IADO, the Director of IADO, and the Chairman of IADO TUE Committee wished all of the audiences could be more careful to anti-doping. If they felt doubtful, they were strongly recommended to consult their team doctors.

They were very young, and these would be very ridiculous if there would be any of them suspected to use any prohibited substances.
