In addition to intensifying education activity, IADO also conducted a panel training of Hearing Session from the RM Committee on August 25th to 28th, 2022. The training was intended to strongly encourage Hearing Session Panel members to meet the competence standard stipulated by WADA, in implementing their duties to hear the information and to impose any sanction on any athlete violating the rule.
