Line: Where Medicine and Sport Collide

Line: Where Medicine and Sport Collide
In The Line, Dr Freeman reveals the medical principles and practices that helped lead these athletes to success - ideas that we now consider commonplace, but many of which were in fact the Doc's own innovations. And in a sport where there's an ethical line as well as a finishing line, Dr Freeman gives a frank and open account in response to allegations of misuse of medical treatment to enhance performance. 'Without Dr Freeman, my career would have been shorter and less successful' - Liam Phillips, BMX World Champion
