WHAT IS THE ATHLETE’S BIOLOGICAL PASSPORT?
This month’s AISTS Sports Medicine Podcast
This month’s AISTS Sports Medicine Podcast discusses the Athletes’ Biological Passport (ABP). What is it exactly? How does it help anti-doping? How can it be improved and how does the future look like?
Doping scandals are seen more and more in the media and the position of anti-doping strategies and organisations is changing in the public eye. Belief in the system is fading and this can be a threat to the Olympic Movement. The Athletes Biological Passport is a reliable tool that can, working with other complimentary methods such as education, intelligence and targeted testing, make the anti-doping system efficient and reliable.
Thomas Roos and Andrei Krasilnikau, Class of 2018, discuss the ABP, its benefits, and the possible evolutions and improvements that science is already developing. Spoiler alert: it is all about protecting clean athletes as well as catching the cheaters! Listen to learn more.
