Montréal, el 20 de agosto de 2018
Estimados colegas,
La Agencia Mundial Antidopaje (AMA) tiene el gusto de invitar a las Organizaciones Antidopaje de habla hispana (OAD), al Webinario que se llevará a cabo el 12 de septiembre 2018, sobre la plataforma de aprendizaje antidopaje (ADeL) que constituye el núcleo central para los cursos y recursos de aprendizaje vía internet (eLearning). El programa ADeL se inauguró en enero 2018 y permite a los deportistas, entrenadores y otros grupos mejorar sus conocimientos sobre las normas antidopaje, además de comprometerlos con el concepto del deporte limpio. 
El Webinario está especialmente dirigido a las OAD de habla hispana que estén interesadas en implementar programas educativos en línea a través de la utilización de la plataforma ADeL. Este Webinario es la continuación del mismo realizado en idioma Inglés en enero 2018, que se encuentra disponible en el canal de YouTube de la AMA
Debido a la gran cantidad de solicitudes por parte de los Signatarios de la AMA para que se brinden cursos en otros idiomas, ya se encuentran en esta plataforma 10 idiomas y actualmente disponibles en español en los siguientes cursos:

  • Programa de Aprendizaje sobre Salud y Antidopaje (ALPHA)
  • Entrenadores Juego Limpio
  • Guía de Padres

María José Pesce, Directora de la Oficina Latinoamérica de la AMA comentó: “Estamos muy contentos por el interés que la plataforma de ADeL ha generado en Latinoamérica, donde el 98% de la población es de habla hispana. Por este motivo, hemos decidido presentar este Webinario en español, para alcanzar a su audiencia y a otras que puedan beneficiarse del mismo. ADeL es una poderosa herramienta para la comunidad antidopaje y confiamos que mejorará la capacidad de muchas Organizaciones Antidopaje que tal vez no contaban previamente con los recursos para mejorar el desarrollo de sus programas de educación antidopaje.”

Por favor, suscríbanse al webinario

Fecha/Hora: 12 de septiembre 11:00 AM EST (hora de Montréal).

Formato: Los siguientes presentadores del Seminario, proporcionarán generalidades sobre ADeL, seguido de una sesión de preguntas y respuestas.

International Federation Icestocksport Receives Recognition by the International Olympic Committee!

The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has granted provisional recognition to the International Federation Icestocksport (IFI). The decision was taken during the meeting of the IOC’s Executive Board (EB), which was held on Thursday, July 19, 2018, in Lausanne (Switzerland).  IFI serves as the international sports governing body of all Icestocksport disciplines.

IFI-President Manfred Schäfer commented on the recognition “We are extremely proud to be recognized by the IOC Executive Board now, formally joining the Olympic family and we will continue to work hard to promote the values as stated in the Olympic Charter and further manifested in IOC´s Olympic Agenda 2020. The world of Icestocksport thanks the IOC Executive Board and administration for their support and trust, and our National Federations from five continents, board of directors, and athletes for their enthusiasm and never-ending belief in this process.”

The International Olympic Committee in its formal release stated that the International Federation Icestocksport (IFI) “was granted provisional IOC recognition by the EB. This IF will now be able to receive funding from the IOC and can apply for development programmes. Full IOC recognition must be granted by the IOC Session after the probation period.”

“We are fully aware that we now have two years of continued work ahead of us to prepare IFI for the permanent recognition to be granted by the IOC Session,” added IFI-President Schäfer. “The Icestocksport family is looking ahead to exciting times and opportunities given by the recognition”.

In a letter to IFI President Manfred Schäfer, IOC President Dr. Thomas Bach wrote “Please accept my official welcome to the Olympic family as an IOC Recognised Federation and my congratulations to the IFI. The IOC looks forward to working in partnership with you for the benefit and development of your sport and your athletes.”

Your IFI Executive Board.

Information for our Members: temporary appointment of PETER LONGO (ITA) as Vice-President for International Affairs

Mannheim, 25 June 2018


Dear Members,

Baldur Brandt (AUT), who was elected to the office of Vice-President for International Affairs at the IFI Congress 2018, has resigned from this post as of 5 June 2018.

In accordance with our Statutes (Section 15.5), the “remaining Board members shall be entitled to appoint a temporary deputy member.” This has meanwhile been done by means of a vote by the Executive Board via email. On 19 June 2018, the IFI Office observed that

  • eight Executive Board members had voted,
  • all the votes cast were valid, and
  • all eight votes were in favour of Peter Longo.


Thus Peter Longo (ITA) is appointed as temporary deputy Vice-President for International Affairs.


This appointment applies until the next Congress (expected to take place in early 2020). Peter Longo has accepted the appointment.



Manfred Schaefer, President
