Athletes and ASPs from various regions came to the booth wearing uniforms from their respective regions. The most visitors came from Maluku and East Java. Athletes played anti-doping wheels, where athletes were asked to spin the wheels and when the wheels stopped so that athletes were asked to answer questions related to anti-doping according to the number listed on the wheel, and some played WADA Playtrue Quiz, which is a quiz made by WADA about anti-doping. After playing athletes were asked to fill out a survey and draw prizes. Athletes were also welcomed to ask questions related to anti-doping, in which some questions often asked by athletes were among others: what brands of drugs are included in doping.
