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.
