Fair Play in the Pole Sport World Championships

The Finnish Center for Integrity in Sports FINCIS is present at the Pole Sport World Championships in Jyväskylä. FINCIS will showcase its activities and inspire the spectators to encourage all athletes to perform well in the spirit of fair play.

The FINCIS information stand holds activities for both athletes and spectators. Athletes can test their anti-doping knowledge in the WADA Play True Quiz, which is available in various languages. The best athletes will take home a sports water bottle as a prize. Spectators and athletes can vote for the Fair Play athlete of the event and the athlete with the most votes will be rewarded.

You can also pick up flag stickers at the FINCIS information stand to support your country—or collect the whole set in the spirit of fair play.

“I think that fair play in sports means respecting and encouraging other athletes and giving everyone an equal chance to succeed by competing fairly,” says Finnish champion Meri-Tuuli Roihankorpi-Sirviö, who competes in the Masters 50+ series.

The FINCIS information stand will be open on Sunday 26 November from 10 am to 5 pm. In addition, an English-language briefing about anti-doping activities and a demo doping test will be held for the teams at the Hippos Hall auditorium at 11 a.m. on the same day. Anti-doping activities and the prevention of competition manipulation are part of the responsibility activities of the Finnish Pole Fitness Federation, who comply with the Fair Competition Programme of the Heavy Events Association Finland.

The Pole Sport World Championships are held on 23–26 November in Jyväskylä. More than 200 athletes representing 19 countries will take to the stage in Hippos Hall. More information about the event: https://www.poleworlds2023.com/
