Summary Insight asks who controls an athlete's body in elite sport. In the wake of the ACC report findings, Insight discusses allegations of the use of performance enhancing drugs in Australian professional sports, and asks: who should ultimately be held accountable? Insight looks at the lengths athletes are expected to go to in order to get an edge, with some suggesting that they are not always given a choice. David Parkin, former AFL coach, also breaks his silence on the doping scandal. He says sports scientists have become increasingly influential in clubs and believes the pressure for coaches to get an edge over their competitors means everyone is tempted to bend the rules. This week, former football players, coaches, cyclists, and current sports scientists speak up about who athletes can really trust. Senior Producer: Jodie Noyce Associate Producer: Joel Tozer Insight is hosted by Gold Walkley Award-winning journalist Jenny Brockie. The discussion continues online each week at, and on Twitter #insightSBS
