Sometimes back hallway conversations can lead to the most interesting podcast opportunities. Pj has known Dr. Jane Moran for over 10 years and it was just such an occasion that brought this podcast to light.
Dr. Moran is the chair of the ISU’s Medical Commission, a position she has held since 1999. In November, she was chosen as the representative on the the Association of International Olympic Winter Sports’ Federations on the IOC’s Medical Commission’s Games Group.
As passionate as she is about sport, it is even more important to her that sport is clean and all about fair play. What this means is looking for and going after those who cheat. In this enlightening interview, Pj and Jane talk about the different approaches to anti-doping and what it means to be able to encourage the Olympic ideal of Faster -Higher – Stronger. Jane strives to ensure that each athlete is doing their own best without the aid of illegal or banned substances for performance enhancement.
For more information about anti-doping and the list of banned substances, check out this link at the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) website HERE.
If you’ve ever wondered about how and why anti-doping works; this interview is for you. With thanks to Dr. Jane Moran for taking time out of an already overloaded schedule.
