Athletes carry the torch for clean sport in latest Ask the Athlete campaign

The leading Nordic skiers from across the world participated in the Ask the Athlete – Clean As Snow campaign at the Nordic World Ski Championships in Falun, Sweden last week.

The WADA-FIS campaign, which followed on from the inaugural Ask the Athlete campaign that took place in Incheon, Korea last year, included the views of a series of skiers who were competing at the Championships.

The skiers gave their thoughts on anti-doping in sport and answered questions posed to them by fellow competitors.

Here is a selection of some of the Ask the Athlete – Clean As Snow clips:
