How Athletes Pass Drug Tests, & The History of PEDs in Weightlifting w/ Alex Kolliari-Turner

This was by far the most insightful episode that we have ever recorded on drug use in weightlifting.

Alex took us through the history and development of PEDs, both within and outside of weightlifting, including how the two of them were involved in each others’ development.

We spoke about drug testing, the advancement of WADA’s tests, as well as the ‘clever’ (sometimes) ways by which teams are able to avoid detection.

Alex Kolliari-Turner graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in Biological Sciences in 2015. He achieved the highest 2:1 in his year group and was awarded the Heron-Allen Academic Scholarship from Lady Margaret Hall.
