I am excited to introduce the Clean Sport Collective podcast with this first episode. I am cross-posting it here, so that you can see what we are doing with this new podcast. After this week, you will be able to see more episodes at cleansport.libsyn.com (we have already posted 3 including this one), and they will be up on itunes as well soon.
The Clean Sport Collective is a community of powerful voices comprised of athletes, brands, events, clubs, fans and the public to support the pursuit of clean sport and athletics.
With this podcast, we will celebrate clean athletes, educate you on issues in the world of clean sport, and bring hope that we can all believe in the power of fair play across all sports.
For our first episode, we interview Travis Tygart, the CEO of the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). USADA is the national anti-doping organization (NADO) in the United States for Olympic and Paralympic sport. The organization is charged with managing the anti-doping program, including in-competition and out-of competition testing, results management processes, drug reference resources, and athlete education for all United States Olympic Committee (USOC) recognized sport national governing bodies, their athletes, and events.
We talk about the current state of US anti-doping efforts in this conversation with Travis.
