The conference was held on the 5th June 2018 in Opatija, Croatia. The purpose of the conference, the first of its kind in Croatia, with around 130 participants, was organized to exchange and summarize the experiences and good practices gained during the implementation of the JUST SPORT project. The discussion was focused on a marked problem of uncontrolled use of various supplements, dietary supplements and doping among recreationalists.

Special guest was Andreas Krieger, a former East German shot putter who was once a woman. He’d been forced to take massive doses of steroids that gave him masculine features and heightened his confusion about his sexual identity, ultimately influencing his decision to have a sex-change operation.
