The war against doping can’t be won, says IOC President Thomas Bach


The International Olympic Committee has embarked on an ambitious strategic roadmap for the future: The Olympic Agenda 2020. It includes 40 recommendations that aim to make sure the games are clean and good governance measures are applied. In an exclusive interview with CNNMoney Switzerland, IOC President Thomas Bach says the committee is on track with the reforms, but that keeping political neutrality is a challenge. On the recent doping scandals, Bach says: “Doping will always happen. This is one of the wars you cannot win.” Bach also tells Martina Fuchs his view on whether or not eSports could become an Olympic discipline any time soon.
