Recently, ITU elite athletes had an opportunity to take part in an Anti-doping Survey. This survey will serve to shape ITU’s Anti-doping programme for the next few years. For the past two weeks, we revealed the first few questions to do with anti-doping education. We will continue with the testing questions this week. There were 132 responses.
