Ben Sandford: The Rugged Individualist

In two weeks’ time WADA Athlete Committee member and two-time Olympian Ben Sandford will begin his campaign for an Olympic gold medal, as he begins competing in the Sochi 2014 Skeleton Heats.

As the feature interview in the new, special Sochi 2014 edition of Play True, the 34-year-old New Zealander discusses how he ended up in what he calls the ‘crazy’ sport of skeleton and his hopes for the Games.

Ben also shares his views on skeleton and anti-doping in a special testimonial video on WADA’s YouTube channel WADAMovies.
