Uneven book on doping and public health

Publikation: FormidlingAnmeldelse

Professor Arne Ljungqvist is a heavyweight player in international sport. Not so much because he finished in the top three of European high jumpers at the Olympic Games in Helsinki in 1952. But because of his massive influence in international sport policy via his high ranked positions in the IAAF, the IOC and the WADA. You can check his profile on Wikipedia for the full list. Here it should suffice to say that he was member of the IOC Medical Commission from 1987-2014, its chairman from 2003-2014, member of the Board and Executive Committee of WADA 1999-2014, WADA vice-president from 2007-2014, and Chairman of WADA’s Health, Medical & Research Committee 1999-2014. While he thus cannot claim to be have an impartial voice in anti-doping, he does have extensive knowledge and an enormous network.
