Genevieve Jeanson has offered her perspective on ways to eliminate doping in sport as part of a new documentary series, J’ai une question, that premiered on Crave TV last Wednesday.  

Interviewed by NFL player Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Jeanson said that athletes who test positive for performance-enhancing drugs only deserve part of the blame. She suggested sport instead needs to address and target the whole system that cultivates a “win-at-all-cost” environment.
