The passion of anti-doping chief Travis Tygart
Travis Tygart has headed the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency since 2007. He was at the forefront of the doping scandal involving cyclist Lance Armstrong. He knows that stopping doping in elite sports is far from simple. Yet, protecting the rights of athletes is a passion that he’s committed to. In this podcast, part of the fall issue of Stanford Medicine magazine, Tygart talks about some of the major lessons learned from the Rio Olympics about global anti-doping efforts and why cleaning up sports is a long-term fight that demands the will to effect cultural change.
