Working Zone Excellence

In a world where science and technology innovate at unprecedented levels, notably in the methods of detecting prohibited drugs, it appears that it would be difficult for any athlete to conceal doping. However, experts believe it is becoming more challenging to fight doping. From stricter sanctions to education, there are many directions to explore regarding more efficient deterrence and prevention methods. Focusing resources on the deterrence and prevention of doping, as opposed to solely focusing on post-factum efforts, could prove more effective and efficient. Featuring a variety of athlete perspectives, this session will explore which deterrence methods have worked, and where efforts need to be further expanded.
