At my column this month at Endurance Corner, I wrote about age group triathletes and doping. Based on athlete questionnaires, a recent study found that about 15% of age group triathletes at three long course events in 2013 reported some form of doping in the preceeding year. I shared some information about the study and its findings as well as some of the cardiovascular concerns with the common doping agents.
Looking at the Tweets and comments today, some are surprised the rate is so high….and others are surprised it’s so low. I’m not surprised.
