I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov for the latest episode of the Global Athlete podcast. It was a unique experience. The logistics of the interview were challenging and there were many layers of approval that had to be attained before and after the conversation took place.
Dr. Rodchenkov gave valuable insight into what he called “the Russia problem” in international sport. He talked about the near impossibility of athletes proving their innocence once they are accused of a doping rule violation, and he discussed whether Russian athletes have the option not to dope.
