Prof Jiri Dvorak on anti-doping in sports; Athlete Biological Passport and 10 years in a freezer.

This 12-minute podcast relates to a special 2013 Consensus Meeting on Anti-Doping in Sports & its summary in BJSM’s Special Issue on Anti-Doping (May 2014).

On November 29, 2013, FIFA hosted a meeting of representatives from key Anti-Doping stakeholders. Represented were sports physicians, athletes, legal experts, biomedical scientists, as well as leadership of international sports federations, the IOC and the Word Anti-Doping Agency. To take a ‘giant leap' forward in the battle to ensure a level playing field in sport the group addressed two key questions. (1) ‘Are we doing the right thing?’ and (2) ‘What contemporary methods can move beyond the simple testing strategy that was begun in the 1960s?’

Listen to the ebullient Professor Dvorak analyse anti-doping options and share with you the reasons drug-cheats are either stopping or very nervous.
