“The memory of my very first doping test is still vivid in my mind – I was 15 years old and before being notified during my first Olympic Games that I had been selected for a test, I had never been given any information about what to expect. I felt scared and powerless and therefore believe that it is never too early to educate athletes about their rights and responsibilities, and processes when it comes to clean sport.”
