6.00PM - 7.30PM
Venue: Logie Lecture Theatre, University of Stirling
The University of Stirling's School of Sport asks "The Big Sporting Question", a public series of lectures and debates on the subject of sport today.
We invite you to join us as Dick Pound asks "Doping in Sport: Is There a Way Forward?"
Dick Pound is the doyen of the International Olympic Committee, the founding President of the World Anti-Doping Agency and Chancellor Emeritus of McGill University. He will explore how recent events have shown the discrepancy between what is said and what is done in the fight against doping in sport. How can clean athletes be better protected against those who cheat?
We will open the floor to questions after the talk, so please come along with questions prepared.
