Taking performance-enhancing drugs out of sports
Ben Johnson, the sprinter who infamously won a gold medal for the 100m at the Seoul Olympics in 1988 before his disqualification for failing a routine drug test, is coming to the US as part of a world tour to launch the new anti-doping initiative, Pure Sport.
Johnson will be promoting a new campaign, #ChooseTheRightTrack, which has been initiated by sportswear company SKINS.
As part of the campaign, Johnson will invite sports fans to sign a petition demanding action to improve the waning credibility of world sport which will be delivered to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the WADA at the conclusion of the tour.
Johnson, along with Pure Sport founder Jaimie Fuller, talk to FOX43 about the new push to rid the sporting world of performance-enhancing drugs.
