Also during the tournament, the staff of the Republican Federation held an anti-doping seminar, in which, along with an explanatory part about the dangers of banned drugs, a lecture on the work of the Adams interactive anti-doping system was held. The registration of the athlete and the designation of his location in the ADAMS system is a prerequisite for all members of the national teams. It is done by the athletes themselves and by the coaching staff of the national team. The athletes are given an identification number and a password that gives access to the personal cabinet. Once every three months, the athlete must provide information about his location in the next trimester and indicate the hour when he can be found there. In fact, there is nothing difficult, because the schedule of trainings, meetings and competitions athletes know in advance, and if there are any changes, it is always possible to bring them into the system, explained the director of KazNADC, Maira Bakasheva.
