PARTICIPANTS from seven island countries successfully completed their Play True Pasifik (Anti-Doping) Master Educators and Educators' training workshop in Suva yesterday.

The week-long training took place at the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee boardroom where about 20 participants from American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, and Vanuatu were trained.

The training was conducted by Oceania Regional Anti-Doping Organization (ORADO) in partnership with Oceania Sports Education Program (OSEP).

ORADO chief executive Natanya Potoi-Ulia said the training was the second of its kind in the region this year.

"This was the training of Doping Control Officers to help facilitate some anti-doping education programs that will meet the needs of the athletes and their support personnel," she said.

"Today (yesterday) was the last day of training for us to see them in action so today is what we call the workplace assessment to see what areas we need to improve on before they go back to their respective countries."

The Fiji Kulawai volleyball team was invited to the session yesterday the officers were tested of their engagement skills.

"It was an opportunity for us to see the areas we would need to assist them on what they need to improve on before they go back to their countries."

It was also revealed that the penalty for the first offence of doping will increase from two years to four years.
