STOP DOPING – SWIM FAIR
COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP ERASMUS+

“Stop Doping – Swim Fair!”
is a European-wide strategic partnership between 8 Sport and Sport Research organisations, which aims to raise the knowledge and awareness of the doping use in the swimming world, by a conducted comprehensive research and selection of good practices; development of an innovative “Modular Doping-education Program“ and Guidelines for Swimming organisations and relevant stakeholders.

Along with racism, discrimination, and match-fixing, doping represents one of the most serious threats to the sport. We believe that having a code of conduct in the athlete’s sport is a mandatory prerequisite. Being a healthy athlete is the state of mind one should encourage in all young people. The Bulgarian Swimming Federation’s goal is to promote swimming across the country, support national swimmers, and empower young generations to engage in this noble sport. Our main focus is three-folded – anti-doping, education, and early warning/prevention. Therefore, we came up with an innovative project “Stop Doping – Swim fair!” SDOP is a European-wide strategic partnership between 8 Sport and Sport Research organizations, which aims to raise the knowledge and awareness of doping use in the swimming world, by a conducted comprehensive research and selection of good practices. We aim at addressing a European, but also a universal problem. We have therefore designed SDOP to respond to both EU and International policies and legal frameworks.
SDOP four core objectives:
  • Early prevention: educate 10-18 years old swimmers
  • Fight disinformation: multiplier events
  • Health preservation: protect 10-18 years old swimmers and guide sport organizations
  • Doping elimination: create a safe sports environment for all
The “Stop doping-swim fare” project contains a completely new and innovative approach to solving the perennial problems of doping use in swimming. In accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code, a number of innovative aspects will be developed throughout the project. The collaborative partners’ work will result in the production of the following Intellectual outputs: “Modular Doping-education Program“, the Creation of a group of 16 SDOP Ambassadors, the creation of SDOP Guidelines, and a Comprehensive Research on the subject.
Because with doping, there is no Maybe. There is only a will – and no coming back.
