This week on the Shakeout we dive into the dark world of doping. We bring you the story of the Russian drug scandal that rocked the global athletic community. And we discuss the response, or lack thereof, from the organizations tasked with ensuring clean sport.
In this episode we dissect the culture of state-sponsored doping. We speak with Paul Melia, president of the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, as well as Iñaki Gomez, a 2-time Olympian in the race walk. Our guests shed light on the complex problem of global doping, and its effects on clean Canadian athletes.
