Who really keeps the Olympics clean?

On the eve of the 2024 Summer Olympics, many world-class athletes are tracking the latest scandal over the alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs. The World Anti-Doping Agency recently gave an all clear to 11 Chinese swimmers to compete in their events in Paris even though they had tested positive for a banned substance in 2021. The agency itself is now under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department.

Yet top athletes are doing more than merely watching. They are speaking out and organizing to ensure integrity in sports remains the global norm.
