Every April since 2014, the anti-doping community worldwide has come together to celebrate the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Play True Day.

Play True Day is a day that is dedicated to Clean Sport and raising awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others of the importance of preventing doping.

The IBU and the BIU are delighted to support this important initiative, which takes place today, 14 April 2023. Biathlon athletes are strongly encouraged to participate as well.

The digital campaign is a shout-out for true sport, reaching millions of people worldwide every year. It is designed to give everyone involved in sport the chance to contribute to clean sport.

This year’s theme is #OnePlayTrueTeam, focusing on the importance of your team.

We asked some athletes and coaches: ‘Who (in your Team) inspires you to Play True?’

The answers we received included:

“I am proud and inspired by my whole team. I think that whoever you hang out with, you act the same […] Play safe and play fair!” (Lovro Planko, SLO)

“My whole team inspires me because they are always against cheating and they are fighting for the truth.” (Markèta Davidová, CZE)
