Umar Tiero: In my experience no sportsman has been involved in the doping conflict during world draughts tournaments
On June 16 Russia celebrates the Day of Medical Worker. A representative of this respected profession attends the World Draughts Championship – Umar Tiero, representative of the FMJD Doping Committee.
A smart, hard-working and charming doctor does not allow himself to relax and unwind even on a holiday. I had a chance to put him off for several minutes to ask my questions. During conversation he told me that professional holidays are celebrated in America too, in particular, in New York, where he lives.
- Usually on professional holidays doctors organize conferences where they discuss global issues like cancer control, promotion of healthy lifestyle, doping issues and other things, - Umar told. – Because of my profession I have to travel a lot and, of course, to take samples from sportsmen. In my experience no sportsman has been involved in the doping conflict during world draughts tournaments, - said Umar.
It is worth mentioning that sportsmen have been tested before starting the World Draughts Championship and today on June 16. Three sportsmen of the leaders have passed this procedure – Alexander Georgiev (Russia), Jean Marc Ndjofang (Camerron) and Alexander Getmanski (Russia).
