Bruce Kidd was an Olympic athlete who became an academic scholar specializing in kinesiology and sport. He has been president of Scarborough College at the University of Toronto and advises government and sports associations. We talk about the connection between political and sports rivalries and the ethical standards to maintain when disciplining countries and athletes for cheating. Should countries that have launched aggressive wars be allowed to participate in world sporting events? Should certain sports be banned for being too dangerous to the players? If so, which sports? And what criteria should be relevant in making such a decision?
We produce several one-hour-long Zoom conversations each week about various aspects of six issues we address. You can watch them live and send a question to the speakers or watch the edited version later here or on our Youtube channel.
