A busy, busy week on the anti-doping front. The big news for cross-country fans was the hit Norway’s reigning World Cup champion Martin Johnsrud Sundby took regarding his asthma-medication use two seasons ago. But casting an even bigger net — one that has implications for global sport and Russia in the both short and long term — was the McLaren report released Monday morning. (You can find the full McLaren report here).

In this podcast episode, FS takes a shallow dive into the report, illuminates the thoughts of athletes on both the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Athlete Commission and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Athlete’s Commission, and seeks some answers from FS Editor-At-Large Chelsea Little. Yup, there’s a lot in there.

You’ll hear from Richard McLaren, WADA’s independent counsel/investigator, Beckie Scott (Canada) chair of WADA’s athlete committee; Adam Pengilly (United Kingdom) of the IOC athletes’ commission for skeleton/bobsleigh, Hayley Wickenheiser (Canada) of the IOC athletes’ commission for ice hockey, and Ben Sandford (New Zealand) of the WADA athletes’ commission for skeleton.

Note: The interview with Little was recorded Thursday before the International Biathlon Union (IBU) responded to the McLaren report with a press release on Friday.
