Victor Conte: Banned substance use in sport is rampant

Whistleblower Victor Conte, who was jailed in 2005 after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute banned steroids, talks to former sprint athlete Darren Campbell about the current state of doping in athletics.

“The tests they have for growth hormones are relatively weak,” claims Conte.

“My understanding from talking to lots of people in lots of different sports is that there is a rampant use of this substance, and it’s not being detected by the water testers.”

The full interview with Victor Conte can be found in the 5 live Sport Specials podcast page.
