The Decrease Of Drug Testing Doesn't Worry The WADA Head Too Much
“You don’t become a cheater overnight, I mean there’s a mental process and a decision that you need to be taking. So, it’s because you are stuck in your living room and suddenly you’re going to start taking something and in particular the effect of doping while you can’t train is not great. So, I think we have to put that into perspective. This being said, yes, I mean there is a concern and we need to be alerted to the fact that, you know, potentially there are some possible holes at the moment given the situation and that’s what I was saying earlier, that one of our tasks is to work with our partners to identify these holes in particular in advance of a major competition – that will be the Olympic Games next year. So, we’re going to be monitoring with federation and others to make sure that, you know, those who need to be tested are tested.”
– WADA Director General, Olivier Niggli, responding to a question about whether or not he’s worried that dopers might be taking advantage of the fact that drug testing is way down during the global Covid-19 pandemic.
