Next ITA Webinar to take place on 31 August

FITEQ encourages all members of the teqball family, notably athletes and their entourages, to attend the latest International Testing Agency (ITA) monthly webinar series, which is dedicated to “What happens to my sample?”. 

The webinar will feature experts who explain what happens to an athlete’s sample once it leaves the Doping Control Station, how the sample is transported to the laboratory, and what happens once it arrives there. The experts will also go into detail on how a sample is tested, what happens to the B bottle, and how athletes are notified of their results.

As the ITA notes, these parts of the Doping Control Process are called the Chain of Custody and Laboratory Work, and they are just as important to understand as the actual athlete sample collection process.

This month’s guest experts are Tiia Kuuranne PhD, the Laboratory Director of the Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses and Neil Robinson PhD, the ITA’s Head of Science & Medical. The experts will deliver an interactive presentation and leave time at the end of the webinar to take questions.

The webinar will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).

Topic: What happens to my sample?
