The International Federation of Fitness and Bodybuilding (IFBB) and the Jamaican Olympic Association (JOA) organised a joint three-day seminar on anti-doping.
The event was part of the JOA Stamina Seminar series, which intends to give its members and stakeholders a greater understanding of the science, technology and commerce of sport.
The seminar, organised with the IFBB, focused on kinesiology and anti-doping.
Professor Mauricio de Arruda Campos hosted the event, discussing many topics such as the principles of anatomy and physiology, their application to kinesiology and human movement, the use of therapeutic exemption forms and the types of anti-doping rule violations.
It arose after JOA President Christopher Samuda and secretary general Ryan Foster met with IFBB officials at an overseas congress.
"This is the first of many to come," said Foster, as reported by the Jamaica Observer.
"We have started with the IFBB and will continue to motivate and energise our members with knowledge and technical expertise in empowering them.
"It is a mission that we intend to accomplish."
