Drugs in Sport

Listen in pop-out player

Paul Dimeo argues that drugs made modern sport what it is today, and that we ought to take a more sympathetic view of those athletes whose will to win takes them outside the rules of the game.
Paul believes the entire Olympic movement was saved by the drug-fuelled rivalry between the United States, Soviet Union and East Germany, and makes the case that drugs dramatically enliven sport as a spectacle and as a talking point.
Producer: Giles Edwards.
