Swedish blood doping 2001-2010

Postby Magnus Johansson » Wed Feb 07, 2018 2:34 am

Swedish Television has aired a program in its series "Uppdrag granskning" ("Mission Scrutiny") where it is said that two Swedish skiers during 2001-2010 are among the many skiers from various nations that have had blood test results which indicate blood doping. Here is an article with a clip from the program which is partly in English: https://www.svt.se/nyheter/granskning/u ... kt-dopning

Swedish national cross-country team doctor Per Andersson is interveiwed at https://www.svt.se/sport/pyeongchang-20 ... es-varden/ where the following (here in my English translation) can be read about the suspected Swedish blood doping:

"Per Andersson says the Swedish national cross-country ski team doesn't know who the two indicated skiers are. He has only for a brief moment been shown the male skiers values.

– We would of course willingly look closer at this data to see what it is all about. I have only looked at that note for circa 45 seconds, and we have currently no access to the data, so we can't verify it."

I have now come to know that Per Andersson together with FIS' doping expert Rasmus Damsgaard and Bo Berglund of the Swedish Olympic Committee already on 7 February wrote an open letter in which they deny the information about doped Swedish skiers brought forward by Swedish Television's Uppdrag Granskning. The open letter says that FIS has confirmed that no Swedish skier violated the anti-doping rules in the years 2001-2010; see link below.
