The head of US Anti-Doping Travis Tygart fears some athletes will “take advantage” of reduced drug testing during the coronavirus pandemic.
Tygart says the outbreak, which has led to almost 24,000 deaths globally, opens a “window of opportunity” for those not “willing to compete clean”.
US Anti-Doping (Usada) is continuing to carry out “mission critical testing”.
However, Tygart thinks the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics could be the “cleanest Games we’ve seen”.
“People around the world have indicated significant reductions [in testing], in some places it may have shut down entirely,” the American told BBC Sport.
“I think clean athletes are going to compete clean and are not going to try and take advantage of this situation. (Text courtesy BBC)
