Say No to Doping – WADA Feature Video

Courtesy of WADA:

The video below, EFFORT, was produced as a campaign to encourage athletes to achieve based on “effort,” not by using performance-enhancing drugs and cheating. WADA produced these videos for nearly all non-traditional sports.

Via the WADA YouTube Channel:

EFFORT: Sporting success and true enjoyment can only be achieved through genuine effort.

Based on the success of its 30-second Say NO! To Doping video, highlighting sport values, WADA has made a series of 15-second clips available to its stakeholders, in order to support their efforts in promoting clean sport.
