New Paper on Older Athletes and Doping

Standard

Šindelář and Lenten (2020).

The link goes to a new paper by Jakub Šindelář (from work he did in his PhD at the University of Turin) and myself, and it investigates the link between the propensity to dope and athlete age (in elite-level track and field). We show that there is some cause to believe that older athletes closer to retirement are more likely to return a positive doping test.

As usual, comments/suggestions will be appreciated.
