The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - DT/TV -

Net­flix Play­wright and tal­ented am­a­teur cy­clist Bryan Fo­gel’s self-ad­min­is­tered ex­per­i­ments with per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs are just the open­ing chap­ters of this grip­ping story. By pure luck, Fo­gel en­lists the ser­vices of a Rus­sian doc­tor named Grig­ory Rod­chenkov, who is about to be­come one of the most no­to­ri­ous fig­ures in the his­tory of sys­tem­atic dop­ing. Re­mem­ber when Rus­sia got kicked out of the 2016 Olympics? That was be­cause of the cun­ning mis­deeds of Rod­chenkov. Amaz­ingly, he’s only too happy to share all his tricks of the trade while the cam­eras are rolling (and Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin makes his dis­plea­sure known).
