Top reviews from Doping : Sports, Organizations and Sciences

By IGNov 3rd 2017

Doping explained from a different view point, through its history and the `why`, informing about behaviour. I enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Thank you very much.

By JLMay 11th 2018

I loved this course. It fed my existing knowledge on doping in sport and has since influenced my behaviour as a coach.
