Curious because I’m not that knowledgeable about how the biological passport scheme works, is it a requirement to participate at a certain level to have a biological passport? When I’ve read of it in the past it sounded as though it was a voluntary step to participate. Do we have any idea say of what percentage of finalists in world championships have a biological passport? I think I saw somewhere that there were 84 blood tests during Barcelona, that doesn’t sound like that many to me. I know there were a higher number of pre-competition tests though.
