Anti Doping

Play True Day on 10 April

World Anti-Doping Agency, WADA, will be celebrating along with athletes, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations, Sporting Federations, Major Event Organizers and others around the world on Tuesday, 10 April.
‘Play True Day’ is dedicated to clean sport and is intended to raise awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others about the global fight against doping. On this day, WADA will be asking athletes why they ‘Play True’?

The inspiration for this initiative stems from a WADA-hosted Education Conference in 2013, which was attended by 17 South American countries that were the driving force behind 10 April being declared ‘Play True Day’. While it started as a South American initiative, over the years, this grassroots movement has gained momentum with numerous European countries celebrating in 2016 and more joining the campaign from around the globe in the following year.
This is an example of what a grassroots movement can achieve. The organizers saw an opportunity to educate, to promote clean sport and to celebrate the many reasons to play true – and they seized it. Together, we can leverage this momentum to create a world where the clean athlete prevails, a world where athletes choose to stay clean out of self-respect, fairness to their fellow competitors, and for the pure joy that sport brings.

In a spirit of solidarity among the anti-doping community, Federation of International Bandy, FIB, joins WADA and others by celebrating the day and paying attention to Play True Day on our website and on Facebook. 

Several Anti-Doping Organizations, National and International Sport Federations, and educational institutions have already organized events to run on #PlayTrueDay dedicated to clean sport and/or including relevant content in their existing events before, during and after 10 April.

During the World Cup in Bandy in Sandviken in October, FIB will conduct a seminar on efforts on the work with anti-doping in the world of bandy. This is to increase knowledge about the negative consequences of doping and the positive work done in the various bandy associations within the Federation of International Bandy. FIB will return later with information and invitation about the seminar at the World Cup in Sandviken.

Salbutamol and salmeterol are permitted in competition and out of competition in dosages considered to be appropriate for the treatment of asthma (see below). Terbutaline and formoterol (formoterol permitted from January 1st 2012) require a full TUE (with medical evidence).

Permitted Asthma medication (all medications to be mentioned on the doping control form)

The use of salbutamol, provided the level in the urine is less than 1000 ng/ml (dosage guideline max. 1600 µg/24 h), and salmeterol by inhalation does not require a TUE. These substances when used in other ways, for example orally (tablets), are still prohibited and require TUE’s.

Inhaled Asthma medications that include salbutamol are: Airomir, Atrodual, Buventol, Ipramol, Salipra, Ventilastin and Ventoline. Inhaled Asthma medications that include salmeterol are: Seretide and Serevent.

Inhaled glucocorticosteroids do not require a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)-

Asthma medication requiring a TUE

Beta-2 agonists e.g.  terbutaline and formoterol (formoterol permitted from January 1st 2012) are prohibited and require a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). The request for a TUE should include a complete medical file with a clear explanation of why an alternate medication is being prescribed.

Summary of requirements for the medical file in case of asthma (attach to TUE application):
1.A complete medical history
2.A comprehensive report of the clinical examinations with specific focus on the respiratory system
3.A report of spirometry with the measure of the Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1)
4.If airway obstruction is present, the spirometry will be repeated after inhalation of a short acting Beta-2 agonist to demonstrate the reversibility of bronchocontriction
5.In the absence of reversible airway obstruction, a bronchial provocation test is required to establish the presence of airway-hyper responsiveness

Examples of Beta-2 agonists including terbutaline or formoterol:  Bricanyl, Fomeda, Foradil, Formaxa Oxis, Symbicort and Terbasmin.
