With less than two months to go until the 2016 Rio Olympics, Russian athletes who tested positive to illicit substances in the lead up to the Beijing Olympics have been banned from competing. La Trobe Business School Professor of Practice Catherine Ordway discussed these recent developments on BBC World Radio’s Newsday on Tuesday 21 June 2016.
Last month, Professor of Practice Ordway also spoke about the current state of doping amongst Olympic athletes during an interview on Radio National, as well as during a recent television appearance on ABC’s The World. Catherine was interviewed by Beverly O’Connor about the concerns going into the Rio games and about the difficulty of monitoring cheating. She notes that this is due to “athletes now using a whole range of experimental drugs, none of which have been permitted for human use”. As such, it is “difficult for the World Anti-Doping Agency to get proper verified studies done in order that they be robust enough to stand up in the Court of Arbitration for Sport”.
Professor of Practice Ordway was also interviewed on ABC’s The World Today, where she explained that the world is currently waiting anxiously to find out which athletes may be banned from the Rio games and if any Australians will be caught in the crossfire.
