Event description

Description

Competitive sport sees athletes push themselves to their physiological limits, always striving to extract maximum performance from their bodies. They look for something that will give them an edge over the opposition and improving the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood is a common strategy. Sometimes this competitive nature sees the athlete turn to performance-enhancing substances, where the lines are often blurred about what is and is not permitted.

We are no stranger to high profile cases, including recent high profile doping scandals in the AFL – should athletes should be allowed to take drugs to enhance their abilities? Where is the limit?

We bring together a panel of experts to debate these questions – from those who have proposed strict changes to anti-doping regulations to those who think it’s an athlete’s choice.


Mediator: Associate Professor David Prior

Panel: Associate Professor André La Gerche, Professor Julian Savulescu, Dr. Peter Bruckner.
