The Finnish public expresses great confidence that elite skiers
show integrity dope. So states a poll of Fins. To the Newsroom Finland:
About 60 per cent of the respondents told market research company Taylor Nelson Sofres that they did not believe Finnish skiers' assurances that they were clean.
Commissioned by Karjalainen, Keskisuomalainen, Savon Sanomat and Turun Sanomat, TNS interviewed 1,000 people last week. The papers did not print the margin of error.
Once again we see that the public does not perceive athletes as possessing honesty and integrity, but rather possessing a win at all costs mentality.
