Basketball Ireland supports Play True Day
April 09, 2021
Basketball Ireland strongly supports Play True Day, a day which is dedicated to raising awareness among athletes, the sporting public and others of the importance of protecting clean sport.
We asked our senior men’s and women’s international sides to tell us what it means to them to #PlayTrue.
Basketball Ireland provides extensive Anti-Doping information materials, which can be accessed here.
Basketball Ireland’s Anti-Doping Officer, Louise O’Loughlin, said: “Today is an important day, as we continue to spread the message of the importance of clean sport. Basketball Ireland is continuously working with FIBA, Sport Ireland and WADA, to ensure those participating in basketball here in Ireland can do so knowing that they compete on a level playing field and their hard work and ability is what matters. Integrity is a core value for our sport and doping in sport is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact of sport on society.”
