The Scoop Episode 4: Would Sport Be More Exciting If Doping Was Legalised?

If you’ve not yet tuned into The Scoop, what are you waiting for? The Scoop gives you the low-down from those in all corners of the fitness industry on the most talked-about topics right now. 

We talk to Olympic athletes, medical experts, and your favourite fitness influencers to get answers to your burning questions. 

Listen as our host David Alorka puts our guests through their paces by tackling some pretty tough topics. You won’t want to miss it.

What’s in Episode 4? 

This week’s episode of The Scoop takes on maybe our most controversial topic yet: Would Sport Be More Exciting If Doping Was Legalised? 

We’ll be talking about how widespread doping is in sport today, how dangerous it is, and if it could ever, or should ever, be legalised. 

To help us untangle this topic, we’ve got Professor of Biomedicine Julian Savulescu, Sunday Times journalist and author of the Lance Armstrong doping exposé, David Walsh, and Dutch Olympic swimmer who was falsely accused of doping in her sport, Kira Toussaint. 

Safe to say our guests’ opinions on this week’s topic are varied; with David Walsh firmly believing that doping robs sport of its integrity, and sometimes, its safety, and Julian Savulescu confident that legalising doping could solve many of the industry’s problems. Whilst Kira Toussaint can give us her raw opinion after having first-hand experience of a doping accusation. 

With insider stories, and knowledge of how doping is regulated and what the reality of doping in sport is today, our three guests dissect the ins and outs of the possibility of having legal doping. 

This one might make you consider points of view you’ve never even thought of before, so buckle in and get listening.
