The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the International Testing Agency (ITA) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) all hosted workshops as the United Through Sports World Virtual Youth Festival's education programme continued today.

WADA and the ITA hosted a joint session on clean sport, which featured a number of anti-doping officals.

Among them was WADA vice-president Yang Yang, who was China's first-ever Winter Olympic gold medallist and won two titles at Salt Lake City 2002.

Yang was joined by ITA education manager Olya Abasolo, WADA education coordinator Ariadna Camargo and Eva Erfle, a WADA education consultant.

The importance of honesty in sport holding a zero-tolerance policy towards doping was emphasised.

"If you can be honest with yourself, you can improve yourself," Yang said during the workshop.

"You will know your weakness, you know how to help yourself and you can be honest to your friends, your coaches and your families and you can get help from them."

Camargo spoke of the necessity of respect in sport, while Erfle used extreme scenarios on a football pitch to demonstrate why rules exist.

Examples included having different age groups play against each other, one side having more players or the teams shooting at different-sized goals.

Abasolo ended by running through responsibilities athletes must take on to maintain clean sport, such as knowing and following anti-doping rules, taking responsibility for your body, informing medical professionals of any athlete obligations, and cooperating with anti-doping organisations.

She also listed athletes' rights, including the right to the protection of health, whistleblower protection, equality of opportunities and fair testing programmes.

The IPC also ran a workshop today on its I'mPOSSIBLE initiative and the Paralympic Movement.

This featured three-time Paralympic medallist Brad Scott of Australia, British Paralympic skier Anna Turney and Kaitlyn Schäfer, membership programmes manager at the IPC.

"It's great to see that we can really appreciate that people with disabilities are just as equal and valued as everyone else - or should be, anyway," said Scott.

There was a focus on Paralympic values and the importance of fair play in sport, as well as the IPC's I'mPOSSIBLE education programme.

Finals in five Virtual Youth Festival competitions - one of which is the IPC Inclusive Sports Challenge - begin tomorrow.
